Penguin Putnam
It's evening in the forest and Little Owl wakes up from his day-long sleep to watch his friends enjoying the night. Hedgehog sniffs for mushrooms, Skunk nibbles at berries, Frog croaks, and Cricket sings. A full moon rises and Little Owl can't understand why anyone would want to miss it. Could the daytime be nearly as wonderful? Mama Owl begins to describe it to him, but as the sun comes up, Little Owl falls fast asleep.

Putting a twist on the bedtime book, Little Owl's Night is sure to comfort any child with a curiosity about the night.

Baker & Taylor
Little Owl enjoys a lovely night in the forest visiting his friend the raccoon, listening to the frogs croak and the crickets chirp, and watching the fog that hovers overhead.

THIS BOOK IS SO CUTE! It actually is so cute it hurts... not really. But oh it is so adorable! It's gorgeous and I love the nocturnal twist on a "bedtime story" at the end.

Simply adorable book! My 2 year-old wants me to read it to her several times a day, and she'll look through it on her own too. What drew me to the book was the bright, whimiscal, almost folksy artwork. The storyline is easy for a child to follow and shares the author's love for the forest at night time. It's a calming book with soothing text and educational qualities - teaching children about animals, flowers, and other new words. Definitely a book to purchase.
