Daddy, Me, and the Magic Hour By Laura Krauss Melmed, Illustrated by Sarita Rich

After getting home for the day and having dinner, a young boy is ready for some special time outside with his father.

It's the Magic Hour, when the sun is going down and day meets night. Daddy and son walk down the street and see their neighbors going through their evening rituals -- watering plants, walking dogs, going for a run. Then it's on to the playground, where father and son have the equipment all to themselves. They can choose any swing!

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