Virtual Migratory Bird Day Storytime about Birds

May 13


With the night sky over most cities now nearly 100 times brighter than in the last century, children are missing out on the experience of the natural darkness. This charming story, along with stunning watercolors of night sky and wildlife, presents the thrill and wonder of a child exploring darkness without fear. This is a perfect read-aloud story for bedtime or any time.

Join us in a virtual celebration of World Migratory Bird Day. As migratory birds travel from wintering to nesting sites, they face a significant threat from light pollution.
We’ll learn about why dark skies are important from author, Paul Bogard, as he reads What if Night?, and then we’ll draw along with illustrator Sarah Holden as she demonstrates how to draw animals from the book.

Recommended for ages 2–5. Hardcover, 32 pages.
