The Magic Hour Laura Krauss Melmed, Sarita Rich
After a day of running around the classroom and then teasing the family cat, a young boy needs some down time.

After dinner, Daddy takes him on a walk. It’s the Magic Hour, when the sun is going down. And day meets night. They walk through the neighborhood, as other family are having their nighttime rituals, walking their dogs, watering their plants. Then on to the playground, where father and son have the equipment all to themselves. They can choose any swing!

As darkness sets in, they find fireflies on their way home. Then it’s time for bed, where mommy and daddy both tuck the boy in.
