A Night Light for Bunny free printable

This post for A Night Light for Bunny: A Glow in the Dark Search by Geoffrey Hayes includes a free printable.

Note:  This glow-in-the-dark book should be read in a really dark room with a flashlight!

Night Light for Bunny This book tells the sweet story of a little bunny who wants a night-light. Father pretends he doesn’t understand and takes little bunny outside at night and shows him the wonderful glowing lights everywhere such as the moon, stars, porch lights, and more.  They return home and tell Mama bunny wants a night-light inside the house.  Mama finds the one she had when she was little and the problem is solved.  Not only does the light keep the room a little bright in the darkness, it makes wonderful shadows of ships on the walls.

I was interested as parts of the pictures are supposed to glow, and I thought it would be a nice story at bedtime.  I could feel the raised yellow areas that were supposed to glow with my fingertips. However, it didn’t work at all the first time I read it.  I found if I opened one page at a time in the sunlight and then went in a dark room the “lights” did glow.  However, my daughter-in-law just stopped over and explained patiently to me you use a flashlight in the dark and the spots do GLOW!  Now I can highly recommend this sweet book.

    I hate when things don’t work the way they are supposed to! By now I would think someone would have invented a better glow-in-the-dark substance that doesn’t need to be in sunlight so long! A
