My Modern Nursery #120: The House in the Night Inspiration Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

For this month I was inspired by the soothing poetry of Susan Swanson and etched illustrations of Beth Krommes in the Caldecott award winning picture book, “The House in the Night.” Even in the darkness, the light shines through this soothing bedtime story.


In only black, white and yellow, the images are rich and textured. Even though the pages are mostly black, a light glows through it all and there’s nothing to fear in the night.
