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!
I find it perfect as a bedtime story as it's very soothing. I started reading it to my daughter at two months, she probably doesn't understand but likes looking at the illustrations,and the story is relaxing rather than stimulating compared to other happy fun kids books which seem more suited to the day! Highly recommended!
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.
After reading it a couple times I started to really enjoy it. The story walks us through little owl's night out. He visits different friends and has a little adventure. It has high contrast pictures and the cutest little owl ever. The story is just the right length for my 2 year old and I. Every night I let him chose 2-8 books depending on what time we get ready for bed. He choses this one about half the time. I don't dread it like I do others (like "Doggies" by Sandra Boynton). I wouldn't hesitate to buy this one again.
