Daytime Nighttime
by William Low

PreS-Gr 1—Low brings his brand of hyperrealistic painting—so effective in his Machines Go to Work (2009) and Machines Go to Work in the City (2012, both Holt)—to the natural world. Here, he explores the concepts of day and night via a simple text and gorgeous, full-bleed, double-page paintings that feature diurnal and nocturnal animals reveling in their elements. “What do you see in the daytime?” highlights such light-dappled backyard and neighborhood denizens as butterflies, robins, bumblebees, grasshoppers, red-tail hawks, beavers, rabbits, puppies, and the sun. In turn, the question “What do you see at nighttime?” is answered with fireflies, bats, owls, frogs, raccoons, teddy bears, and the moon.  A captivating concept book, a lovely introduction to the natural rhythms of the animal kingdom, and a sweet selection to share at the end of a busy day.—Luann Toth, School Library Journal

Machines go to Work in the City
by William Low

Vroom goes the garbage truck as it lumbers through town and finishes up at the landfill. The train’s brakes pssssshhhhh as it passes slowly by the track workers. A vacuum truck, a bucket truck, a tower crane, a baggage carrier and a passenger plane all do their heavy work with their dedicated and skilled operators and support workers. Maintaining and expanding upon the format he employed in his earlier work Low presents each vehicle, with an appropriate onomatopoetic sound, in two double-page spreads wherein a simply stated question is posed with the answer appearing on a gate-fold that enlarges the view even further.

by Mara Rockliff and illustrated by William Low

When John’s mother trudges home from her first day as a stonecutter, “She is gray as ashes, from her headscarf to her boots. Even her bouncy beaded earrings have gone dull as dirt.” What’s more, it’s all from cutting just one stone, “and it’s not done yet.” But Momma doesn’t mind the hard work because she’s a stonecutter at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in New York City.
