"The whisper-soft text is full of poetry, and the art will have preschoolers staring, wondering and dreaming, long after the story is done." -Chicago Tribune
Praise for LITTLE OWL'S DAY:
"Young readers will enjoy following Little Owl on his explorations, and this story, paired with Ashley Wolff’s Baby Bear Sees Blue (S. & S., 2012), can instill in them a sense of wonder at the natural world." —School Library Journal
"Srinivasan conveys the magic of a fantasy world that will delight very young children." —Kirkus
"This is a worthy companion to Little Owl’s Night (2011), and the bold, eye-catching artwork will work equally well with kids in groups or kids on laps." —Booklist
Praise for Divya's first book, LITTLE OWL’S NIGHT:
"This debut picture book gets it all just right. The story, while familiar, is executed deftly and with heart, and the crisp graphic elements of the artwork juxtapose well against the pretty prose." —Booklist, starred review
"The story's chief virtue is its graceful, balletic prose... It's a provocative inversion of the classic bedtime story, and a solid first outing. Srinivasan's message is that night is a delightful place, and that's useful knowledge for small children." —Publishers Weekly
"A graceful bedtime story celebrates the beauty found in night... Hold on to Little Owl's tail feathers and soar." —Kirkus
"This exceptional first book by Srinivasan, a talented illustrator... follows Little Owl during his nighttime explorations... this bedtime tale may even convert children who are afraid of the dark into adventuresome night owls" —New York Times Book Review
"This is the most visually and verbally gorgeous picture book of the year... Simple, dazzling - and simply dazzling." —The Boston Globe

The story in this book is really great for kids and makes it fairly easy for them to understand. Each page has a couple sentences so it's not too much and not too little of a story. Little Owl's Day is the story of Little Owl and the animals he sees during the day. He normally isn't awake during the day but he is woken up by a noisy squirrel and can't go back to sleep. He decides to explore his surroundings and see all of the animals who are sleeping at night when he is awake. Some of the same animals in Little Owl's Night appear in this book so children get to see what those animals do during the day.
I think Little Owl's Day is a wonderful book for young children and, if they like Little Owl's Night, they will most likely enjoy this one as well. My kids already love it and we like to read both before bedtime. Little Owl's Day isn't necessarily a bedtime book but the story ends at nighttime so you can definitely use this for bedtime. If you read Little Owl's Day and Little Owl's Night one after the other, they will help paint a picture for children about what Little Owl does during the cycle of the day. We often read these books before bedtime and I see us enjoying this one for a long time. I highly recommend this book for anyone looking for a good book for a young child!
The images are beautifully drawn with bright, vivid colors to capture the child's attention. My son is only 2 month old but enjoys looking at both books as he listens to me reading them.
I highly recommend both Little Owl's Day and Night as a complimentary set.
