by Jim Aylesworth
Illustrated by Pamela Patrick
Compare the universal theme of the anticipation of waiting for a parent as Aylesworth portrays it in Through the Night to a similar anticipation portrayed in When Mama Gets Home by Marisabina Russo (Greenwillow, 1998).
Compare and contrast the calmness of a nocturnal drive through the country as presented in Aylesworth's Through the Night with a similar drive as portrayed in John Coy's Night Driving, illustrated by Peter McCarty (Henry Holt, 1996).
