Light Up the Night

Children’s author Jean Reidy has a new picture book, and it's getting rave reviews:

Light Up the Night by Jean Reidy
Illustrations by Margaret Chodos-Irvine

When it’s time to sleep, it’s nice to know there’s a place that’s safe. In a cozy house, in a comfy bed, under a blanket that’s white and red under stars so bright they light up the night in your own little piece of the universe.

(My grandbaby will love it!)

To celebrate the release of Light Up the Night, Jean is holding an online auction November 7-18 to benefit literacy in Africa and a library at Musana Children's Home in Iganga. Check out the list of items going on the block:


  1. Pick a Peck o' Picture Book Critiques

  2. Autographed Cap and Suit from Olympic Hopeful Missy Franklin

  3. 50 Pages or 5 Picture Books Critique from Agent Erin Murphy!

  4. Signed copy of WE'VE GOT A JOB: THE 1963 BIRMINGHAM CHILDREN'S MARCH

  5. Critique of the Month Club

  6. Handmade Ugandan Beads and Bags from Musana
