This book is short and sweet, perfect for toddlers. The illustrations are GORGEOUS, and the little owl popping through the cutouts couldn't be any cuter. My 16-month-old giggles incessantly every time I make the owl puppet move. I love this book and wish we had it for our first child. Definitely going to get the other books by this author.

Super cute book. There is a hole in the back of the book to put your finger through so that the owl is used like a puppet on each page. My 1 year old loves it.

We read this book daily. He loves the little finger puppet owl and likes to turn the book over in his hands and figure it out. The story is simple but sweet. We love it and then bought in my pond and in my den. Really durable too

My 8 month old loves the owl puppet, but after reading a handful of times, the puppet is starting to look a little bent out of shape. It doesn't quite fit through the last cut out in the book, which bends the ears and legs. The book really holds baby's attention, but it's only 5 pages long - bit of a bummer. Overall, it's a fun book, but maybe overpriced for what you're getting.

This is quite possibly the best-designed book out there for infant readers. "In My Tree" was the first book to really engage my baby, and it remains her favorite by far at 5 months. The more we read it, the more I can see why.

The finger puppet is great way to hold a baby's interest from page to page. She watches it wiggle and recognizes it as it re-appears after every page turn. The puppet is facing forward and has big eyes, which is an advantage over some of the other Gillingham puppet books.

The text is perfect for a baby's attention span, both in the length of each page and in the number of pages. It's short and spare, which means you'll have to read the book more interactively as the child gets older. But that's really for the better.

Each picture has a distinct and bold color scheme rather than just a hodge-podge of colors. This works well against the recurring puppet and makes each page a new experience for a baby that is learning to perceive colors. I haven't found another infant book that introduces color so effectively. There are bugs and snails and other discrete images on each page -- content to point at and talk about as the child becomes more perceptive.

It's probably odd to write a review that's many times longer than the book itself, but I think there is huge value in getting a baby interested in reading. This little book is a wonderful way to start.

I added this book to our baby registry and when we received it, I was disappointed, thinking that it has very little content and very little words inside and it was a waste of money. However, our son found it super interesting. He is now almost a year old and he still finds this book engaging for long periods of time. I do read it to him some times but he loves just opening and closing it, looking at the puppet, and the holes in a book are a great toy in itself - my son likes dropping things in these holes (and I sometimes then hide these objects, which is a great game), or sometimes I look through the hole at him and it give him laughs! Vibrant colors stimulate him as well. Great book and a toy in one!

Got this for my little one for Christmas along with a few others in this collection. Very sweet books. The pictures are beautifully illustrated and the little puppet that moves around in the center is so cute! My older boys love to play with the puppet for my baby while I read the book. The little one smiles and giggles. It's a favorite book.

This is a cute book, but it is only a few pages long. My four month old loves the owl, but always looks for more pages when the story is done.
