Owl wakes up at the crack of dusk in a great mood! He’s gathered all this toys and books and playthings, and he can’t wait to go play with his friends! “Hooray for today!” he greets them with, inviting them to play with him. But everyone he asks is too tired to play at night. Feeling discouraged, Owl heads for home, but when he arrives, a surprise is in store!
What a cute book! It’s mostly just a fun story, but it’s a great way to introduce kids to nocturnal vs. diurnal animals. Owl’s positivity is infectious, and his care towards his friends is charmingly sweet. Loved the boldly colored yet simple illustrations and the large typeset, especially the big, bright letters (JJ is learning letters, so it was great for pointing out specific ones). The length is perfect, and JJ and I had a ball reading it. A fun, positive book about friendship and play, and we loved it. Baby Bookworm approved!
