Bedtime Story: Little Owl's Night by Divya Srinivasan

Read for: Children's Book Challenge
Synopsis: "It's evening in the forest and Little Owl wakes up from his day-long sleep to watch his friends enjoying the night. Hedgehog sniffs for mushrooms, Skunk nibbles at berries, Frog croaks, and Cricket sings. A full moon rises and Little Owl can't understand why anyone would want to miss it. Could the daytime be nearly as wonderful? Mama Owl begins to describe it to him, but as the sun comes up, Little Owl falls fast asleep.

Putting a twist on the bedtime book, Little Owl's Night is sure to comfort any child with a curiosity about the night."

My Review: Munchkin has been learning about nocturnal animals at school and this was a great way to bridge the gap from school to home. We enjoyed this book and he loved pointing out the animals he knew were active at night. I really liked the illustration style, it was a little blocky but full of color. This would be great for kids learning about night animals or just those young ones needing a soothing bedtime story.
My Rating: Munchkin really enjoyed this one and I like how it worked well with what he was learning at school.  It is also a nice easy read and perfect for bedtime.  We give it a rating of Three Paws and a Stump Wag.
Good Night! Sweet Dreams!


  1. I've seen this book around and have been curious about it. It looks really cute.

    1. It is very cute but I think Gnome would get bored, unless maybe reading it to her little sister. It is great for little ones with a short attention span and I really like the illustration style.
