Little Owl's bedtime by Debi Gliori. Illus. by Alison Brown

cover image

This is a fun bedtime story.  Little Owl is not ready to go to sleep and continues to come up with excuses as to why he can’t go to sleep, like most small children.

In the end Mummy Owl finds out that the reason he doesn’t want to go to sleep is because he is excited about tomorrow.  Mummy explains to Little Owl that tomorrow will come quicker if he goes to sleep and Little Owl finally falls asleep.

 This book is beautifully illustrated; the pictures are bright and colorful and attention grabbing. They support the story beautifully.

 I highly recommend this book.

Themes: Bedtime.
