It's a good one to show little ones how night can be beautiful and un-scary. Owl out for the night.

Sep 20, Barbara rated it really liked it Shelves: Here's a delightful picture book for all you night owls. Little Owl spends his time watching the nocturnal animals of the field and forest moving about and listening to the chirps of crickets and the croaks of frogs. But as night draws to a close, he requests a story from his mother. She tells him night ends and day begins in beautiful, lyrical language, but he doesn't hear the end of the story because it's sleep time for Little Owl.
Young readers will request this title again and again when it' Here's a delightful picture book for all you night owls.
Young readers will request this title again and again when it's time for their bedtime reading, and their caregivers won't mind repeated readers because of the fluid text that almost has a dreamlike quality about it. The illustrations also have great appeal with wonderfully drawn pines, green grass, and animals with huge eyes.
Even the end papers feature interesting details such as a racoon reaching into a squirrel's treasure trove of nuts to steal an acorn or two. Nov 28, Wordsmith J rated it it was amazing.
As an avowed night owl myself, I really appreciated this rarity Nighttime is beautiful and magical for Little Owl, it's his world.

Reading Little Owl's Night, first, was the right order, I think. Characters are introduced that come up in the other book, too - good old bear in Grumbly Cave!
Little Owl's Night
The illustrations are enchanting and have a spare, but magical quality about them, from the misty dewdrops clinging to spiderwebs, to the moonflowers closing and the morning glories opening as dawn nears, and Little Owl must go home and get ready for bed himself. Just a really neat, unusual little book that highlights something not often highlighted in children's stories Apr 21, Meredith rated it really liked it. This is my daughter's 16m favorite book. I have it completely memorized because of how many times I've read it to her and while that can drive a person mad, I'm glad the comfort task fell to Little Owl and friends.
The cadence of the story is very soothing and she loves the animals. Feb 19, Laura McLoughlin rated it really liked it Shelves: My son and I enjoy reading it right before bed.

Readers will love following the night's journey with Little Owl as he flies through the forest on his way to his tree and mother, to get ready for bed. On his journey he sees his woodland friends, and takes in the night activities around him. One of my favorite things about the book besides Little Owl, was seeing all his woodland friends and what they were up to. Upon returning home, he asks his Mama about the fast approaching morning. I liked how Divya gives readers both the night life in the woods, and what transpires as the sun begins to rise.
Baby owl is asleep before Mama Owl finishes her story and the sun is up, but readers get to see all the that happens as the woodland animals who are up all night head to bed and the morning animals awake. As I mentioned above, I loved it! I'd definitely recommend this for young children. The story's text is perfect for toddler's who can't sit too long, and is easy for them to understand. The illustrations are just right for this age group as well.
They've not overly detailed, and well suited for young ages with the bold colors and simple artwork. I'm not a toddler, and I thought the entire book was adorable.

After Owl describes the beautiful night life of the forest, the mother bat starts to tell the story of morning. By the time mother bat got around to telling about the day, Owl was missing out because he was already asleep.
It is a simple tale; therefore it is very appropriate for children and could have been in the running for the Caldecott award. There are not many words on the pages because the illustrations tell most of the story. The pictures are unique because certain features of the animals are so big and they are all very animated, even when they are stationary. The background of each picture is black, so the colors and details of the animals will jump off the pages and grab the attention of all children.

This book could have easily won the Caldecott award because of the uniqueness, quality, and storytelling ability of the illustrations. Mar 11, Daisy Forrester rated it liked it. I like this book. The illustrations are completely adorable, and the board book format is wonderful for small hands. There's just one problem, and that's the text.

There really isn't a story, although there sort of tries to be one. The text is at times mellifluously descriptive, and at other times confusingly flat. It does not flow from page to page, and some of the "characters" and happenings simply make no sense and seem random, and therefore do not demand attent I like this book. It does not flow from page to page, and some of the "characters" and happenings simply make no sense and seem random, and therefore do not demand attention.
I wish that the author had used some other resources for writing the text in the story, because the illustrations are truly a wonderful work of art. The pictures alone are a reason to just keep this one on the shelf, for small hands to manipulate and visually enjoy. Jan 14, Holly Letson rated it it was amazing Shelves: I loved everything about this book. The story was simple.
The art was simple. Nothing was overdone, and it was very enjoyable.
It told of nighttime in the forest, and how different animals act at night. Description 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.
