Sleepy Little Owl by Howard Goldsmith


Sleepy Little Owl by Howard Goldsmith

Open the eyes of young readers to the world of nighttime animals! Mother Owl says, Night owls play at night and sleep during the day. But Little Owl is determined to stay up all day and play under the radiant sun, so he steals away, once his parents are asleep. Along the way, he makes new friends and sees some interesting sights - but he's getting sleepier and sleepier - he tries other beds, but none of them is comfortable, and he's so far from his soft, safe nest. Maybe this wasn't such a great idea, after all... Sleepy Little Owl is the first title in the new Early Learner's Science Through Stories series of scientifically accurate, beautifully illustrated picture books. This delightful tale of an adventurous baby owl introduces young children to the waking and sleep cycles of nocturnal and diurnal animals, including mouse, woodpecker, frog, opossum, raccoon, and chipmunk - while gently pointing out the perils of ignoring the rules!
