Here's how a normal day is for Little Hoot. Like most owls he goes to school, plays with his friends, and practices his pondering and staring. That's fine. He's fond of all of that. What he doesn't like, however, is bedtime. Every night Little Hoot wants to go to bed at a reasonable hour like his other non-owl friends, and every night it's the same story. "If you want to grow up to be a wise owl, you must stay up late." On this particular night Little Hoot begs to go to bed but his mom lets him know in no uncertain terms that he must stay up one whole hour before she'll let him sleep. Finally, after counting down the last ten minutes of play, Little Hoot is allowed to go to bed.Read more ›
It is, frankly, a hoot to see him grumpily playing an extra hour before bed, and to hear his parents begging him for a glass of water or a story before he tucks himself in!
Definitely a must-read, even if it isn't *quite* as good as its predecessor, Little Pea.
This book is the neatess twist on that, as the little owl wants to go to bed like the rest of his friends, and his parents make him stay up and practice doing what good little owls do. I can't say the book is a quick fix to bed time, but we all LOVED it and so did he.
