Blackout - John Rocco

It’s just another sticky summer night. Everyone is busy, much too busy to turn off the computer and play an old-fashioned board game. Then, suddenly, the lights go out – all of them. The family gathers in the kitchen to make shadow puppets in the dancing candlelight. Together, they climb up to the roof, where they discover a blanket of stars, then down to the street, where they join a block party under the night sky. With breathtaking artwork and sparse text, John Rocco perfectly captures the magic of a summer BLACKOUT (Hyperion, $16.99). Ages 4-7. –Dana Chidiac
