Reviews

Praise for The Nocturnals: The Best Burp

"This latest entry in the Nocturnals series pairs short, spaced outlines of very simply worded, mildly alliterative narrative to cartoon scenes of hypercute wildlife with anthropomorphic features and oversized eyes in a multi-chapter episode that gently prods emergent readers to think outside the belch." --Booklist

Praise for The Nocturnals Grow & Read Early Readers

"This banter-filled early reader describes the initial meeting between shy Tobin the pangolin, brash Bismark the sugar glider, and kindhearted Dawn the fox...the pared-down narration and dialogue quickly establish their personalities...Hecht successfully set the stage for more adventurous outings down the road."--Publishers Weekly

"Beginning readers will enjoy this tale and will cheer on the threesome who defeat a bully by using their words."--School Library Journal

"Especially and unreservedly recommended for family, elementary school, and community library collections."--Midwest Book Review

"The series addresses bullying and empathy in an easy, accessible way, and the books are meant to be read aloud."--New York Post

"Young readers will enjoy this spectacular story that is perfect for reading aloud in the classroom, library, or at home. The adorable artwork is engaging with a touch of silliness that is sure to bring a smile to the reader's face... Children can gain the concept of teamwork, the virtue of courage, and the love of reading just by flipping through the pages of this exciting book."--Children's Book and Media Review

"A quirky, humorous book great for beginner readers, with fun illustrations...a great bonus at the end of the book is the fun facts about nocturnal animals." --Story Monsters
