Praise for LITTLE OWL’S NIGHT by Divya Srinivasan:
"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." -- Publisher's Weekly
"A graceful bedtime story celebrates the beauty found in night... Hold on to Little Owl's tail feathers and soar." -- Kirkus Reviews
"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'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." - Publisher's Weekly --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Well written with beautiful artwork; the wording is not childish at all, it introduces many advanced vocabulary words (waddle, gnawed, hovered, fluttered, gazing, rustling, gliding, etc), as well as a variety of animals (possum, hedgehog, skunk, beaver, raccoon, moths, cricket, bats, etc).
It has sturdy pages and it's the perfect size for her little hands to flip through on her own too.
We also own Little Owl's Colors & 123; and we can't wait until Little Owl's day is released as a board book, we will definitely be purchasing it to add to her collection!
Children will love the characters, the story and the breathtaking illustrations. The style is unlike anything else I've seen, yet it somehow feels familiar at the same time. The story is fun and accessible without being overly simple; there's no baby talk in this book. It's beautiful and poetic, and combined with those adorable animals makes for a unique and memorable reading experience with your child. Wait until you see the bats!
I don't know why we haven't seen any other books from this author before, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that there are more to come. The children's book world needs more stuff like this!
I've already given several copies as gifts, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive -- from kids and parents alike. Everyone is captivated from the first page.
Trust me. Get this book. Get several copies. You'll thank me later.
If you are iffy on this do not be, it is a beautiful book and I feel certain your little person will love it as much as mine did.
Shipped fast and was a thoughtful gift.
We loved it so much, we've ordered two more little owl books, and we'll probably buy more from Divya Srinivasan. I love that there's continuity in the series.
