Written in a style similar to a comic book, Click! is a book with limited words. There are a lot of noises that go on in the night, and one little boy who needs a good night of sleep. To help give his family the rest they need, the boy’s friendly bird-lamp runs around the house to stop all of those pesky noises. He follows the drip, drip, drops to the leaky faucet and the rock, rock, creaks to a rocking chair being blown by the wind. After he takes care of all the night sounds, he makes sure to look after his human boy.
This is a sweet book about friendship and being thoughtful. Since the entire book is told in sound-effects and the bird’s reactions, it’s fun to sit with your child and narrate the story together. The colorful pictures give a lot of character to the sleeping house, showing that it’s not just the little bird who’s alive. Look for the faces hidden in the furniture and items all over the house!
