Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

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

Review

“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

“Straightforward and flowing, this title makes a satisfying introduction to the colors of the day.” ―School Library Journal

“This sweet, wonder-filled picture book will make a good addition to toddler storytime and a perfect bedtime read, too.” ―The Horn Book

My 20 month old son is really into penguins and owls so I bought this book. It is very cute. The little owl is pictured on every page. It teaches colors. The little owl stays awake and sees all the color that the day has to offer and then the night offers.....(I can't tell you that part, you will have to read it yourself). Every time we turn the page my 20 month old will point at the owl, purse his lips and say, "oooooooooo". I am also teaching my 3 1/2 year old son letters and WOW is written a lot in the book in large caps. That may be the first word he knows how to spell.

We heard this book at the storytime at our library and I ordered it as soon as I got home! It is just adorable and both of my daughters ages 3 1/2 and 2 love it! My 2 year old is learning her colors and this book has really helped her! I would definitely recommend it!

I borrowed this book from the town library to read to my 15 month old daughter. My husband and I read it to her over and over (and over) again at her request. We read it so much that when the book had to be returned, our little one was still asking for it. So we ended up ordering her a copy.

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.

I teach young children and have found this is a charming book for teaching about colors. I like it because not only does it portray the colors in a one-at-a-time, easy-to-understand way, it also emphasizes the "Wow" factor - the beauty and variety of all the colors in our world. Children love to join in on the "Wow!" To make it easier for them to participate, I sometimes say "The owl said...WOW!" so they know when to say "Wow," rather than the book's "Wow! said the owl." Young children really enjoy this book.

We really enjoy reading this book to our daughter. She picks it out of the book lineup every time - great illustrations and bold colors. I do wish it was a board-book so it would stand up to all the (ab)use. It has a great flow and cadence and when you boil it down it's a great story - things are amazing elsewhere (greener on the other side of the fence) but chances are the lot you've been dealt is just dandy. A life lesson I'm still working with /goes and reads/ Wow Said the Owl again.

My 16 month old daughter loves this book!
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.

I bought this book for my 3 1/2 year old son, but I think it would be great for younger kids as well. My son loves owls and the reviews of this book were really good. I think its a nice, simple story that teaches about colors and it seems like young kids would enjoy reading along and a great way to learn about colors as well as point out the different objects in the book, like the flowers or the stars. I love the owl and the colors are nice and vivid.

What a wonderful book. I got it from the library and my son loved it so much that I ordered it off Amazon to add to his library. It taught him all his colors in about a day and he loves reading 'Wow!' on every page and pointing out what color everything is.
