This book is great for k-2 readers and it describes a young child and how everyone is busy till the lights went out and there was a block party in the sky. I really liked this book because it describes a story of a child who's parents are very busy with work or other tasks. ( )

This book was just a super sweet example of how sometimes we need the world to shut down in order to connect with one another. It follows the night of a family who was once separated by phones, work, and tv but then all come together when there is a black out in their city. This shows the family how important family time is and even after the electricity comes back they still do their own "blackouts" as a family and all put their electronics away and spend time with one another. I could use this book to show the importance of quality time and spending time with one another without distractions. ( )

On a hot summer night in the city, it's loud and everyone is busy, except our main character, a bored little sister. When the lights go out all over the city, the family gathers candles and flashlights and goes up to the roof, where they're able to see stars and visit with their neighbors ("it was a block party in the sky"). At last, the lights come back on, and everything goes back to normal, but the girl clicks off the lights in her house ("not everyone likes normal") and the final scene shows her whole family playing a board game together by candlelight.

It's a normal night in the city for a family, all plugged into their technology in their separate rooms. When the power goes out, they are forced to the roof and to come together. They spend time and have fun together and when the power returns, they are able to go back to the way they were. But they don't want to. They learn to see the love and special feeling that comes from spending time with one another. This story is a great way to show how technology can sometimes get in the way and make us lose sight of what is really important in life. This is a very cute book and has a message that is relevant to today. ( )

Have you ever endured a long power outage? Remember how you kept flipping the light switch out of habit, forgetting that it didn’t work? It’s possible that author John Rocco has never experienced the sweat and misery of a Southern summer blackout (with kids); but even so, his boldly illustrated new book offers an upbeat perspective on how power outages can bring families and neighbors together by turning off all the distractions.

A little girl living in an urban apartment building with her family can’t seem to find anyone to play a board game with her – until everyone’s busyness grinds to a halt with the loss of electricity. The sparse, simple-but-almost-lyrical narration and the comic-book style pictures describe the family’s adventures in shadow puppets, the “block party in the sky” that they discover when they step out onto their roof, and the goodwill neighborliness happening on the street.

Enjoy this book in the dark, with a flashlight, with all your screens and electronic sounds shut down. You may decide, like the main character, that sometimes it’s a good decision to turn everything off. ( )
