Blackout- John Rocco

08 Oct

Surprises can occur when the lights go out

In the city, everyone is distracted. Parents play on the computer and siblings chat on the phone, but no one talks to each other and everyone is too busy to spend time together.  In this stunningly illustrated book, Rocco beautifully details the enjoyable time a family can share with one another when an unexpected blackout occurs.

The family takes a trip to the roof, where the stars shine brightly in the sky and back to the street where melting ice cream is handed out freely to children who dance in the street.  From creating shadow puppets with a flashlight to playing board games by candlelight, this rare blackout turns into a fun night.  Blackout shows that a great time can be had by all when spent with family.

Recommended for readers age 4-7. *Caldecott Honor Book
