So when Cosmo comes to life, it is the perfect opportunity for Betty to help him overcome his fear and show him the beauty of the night.

Light in the night was a great book, I really liked it. Cosmo was scared of the dark but Betty helped Cosmo to get over his fear by going on an adventure, but then Cosmo helped Betty too! The book has lovely pictures and was easy to read. I really enjoyed it.

A heart warming story about friendship, adventure and being brave. The light and night are both beautifully portrayed within the full page illustrations which are full of detail. I would recommend reading this book to very young children as I would describe it as a lightweight book and can see it being ripped/damaged easily.

A beautiful book where text and illustrations enhance each other.  A story about being brave and overcoming your fears.  Great for sharing with younger children, the addition of the shiny gold to the illustrations makes it really magical.  Overall, a sweet story with a clear message that we can all overcome our fears and become strong.

This book is as beautiful to read as it is to look at. We loved that it was the bear who was afraid of the dark, while Betty loved the magic of night time. We also thought it was lovely how these friends helped each other. We would highly recommend this book.

A beautiful book with delightful illustrations. I love the idea of a story character coming to life. A lovely story about friendship and courage and about being there for each other. A super story for anyone afraid of the dark.

This is just sooooooo charming.  Beautifully illustrated it tells the tale of Cosmo the Bear who comes alive from Betty's storybook.
Together Betty and Cosmo go on an adventure through the night where they both become a little braver.  It's just a delight.

My daughter loved this book. She loves the illustrations and especially the part about the cave. She thought it was magical. In her own words Cosmo is so fluffy, that's why I like him. It's an adventure story where a girl and her friend comfort each other to over come their fears. The book made my daughter feel really happy. She loved finding the animals along the way .

I read it to Class Four aged 3 to 5

This is a wonderful book and the class of 3-5 year old loved it.
The illustrations are detailed and a lot of time can be spent looking at them and discussing what can be seen.
The story is very sweet and has a useful learning point too; it is perfect for any child who has fears to face and especially anyone afraid of the dark.
The children and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this lovely story: it is written well and illustrated beautifully.

This is a lovely story with nice illustrations and I can imagine it would be helpful to read to a child who may be afraid of the dark.  It shows how we can all be strong when it is needed no matter how nervous we may be.  I feel it would be a good one to take out of the library rather than one to read again and again.
