PreSchool-Grade 1—One day, while the other owls sleep, a little owl stays awake and is introduced to an exciting world of color. Wide spreads depict the pink dawn, yellow sun, blue sky, green leaves, gray clouds, and a colorful rainbow. The little owl is wowed by the effect of each new color, but when the sun sets, she decides that the nighttime stars are the most beautiful of all. Collage-style illustrations done in simple, bright shapes show little owl in her tree while the changing colors and perspectives keep each page turn "WOW!"-worthy. The last page includes a color wheel inviting readers to go back through the book and find the hues again. Straightforward and flowing, this title makes a satisfying introduction to the colors of the day.—Julie Roach, Cambridge Public Library, MA END
“With a satisfying night-to-day-to-night cycle, the book not only reinforces the concepts of colors but also provides a sense of security of the way things are supposed to be in the world. The repeated refrain of "Wow!" throughout the book will elicit a chorus among young listeners at storytime.” ―Booklist

The book is a great tool to help teach colors. As each color is introduced to the owl it says "Wow!" and the illustrations are vivid and very cute. This book is nicely done and a good addition to your child's personal library.
It has very vibrant colors and a repeating theme of the owl throughout which is great for repitition in reading. We basically just turn the pages and say the names of the colors and other items on each page but the story is nice as well. Overall, it is a very good book for looking at colors.
