Synopsis

Little Owl's Day by Divya Srinivasan

It's just too exciting to go back to bed, so Little Owl flies through the forest and meadows that he knows so well. Only now, everything looks so different! Flowers are open, colourful butterflies flit by, and Bear is actually awake...and shows Little Owl his first-ever rainbow. Finally, the sun sets and Little Owl can return the favour; he shows Bear the beautiful moon. An enchanting follow-up to Little Owl's Night.

Reviews

Praise for LITTLE OWL'S DAY Young readers will enjoy following Little Owl on his explorations, and this story, paired with Ashley Wolff's Baby Bear Sees Blue (S. & S., 2012), can instill in them a sense of wonder at the natural world. --School Library Journal Srinivasan conveys the magic of a fantasy world that will delight very young children. --Kirkus This is a worthy companion to Little Owl's Night (2011), and the bold, eye-catching artwork will work equally well with kids in groups or kids on laps. --Booklist Praise for Divya's first book, LITTLE OWL'S NIGHT This debut picture book gets it all just right. The story, while familiar, is executed deftly and with heart, and the crisp graphic elements of the artwork juxtapose well against the pretty prose. --Booklist, starred review The story's chief virtue is its graceful, balletic prose... It's a provocative inversion of the classic bedtime story, and a solid first outing. Srinivasan's message is that night is a delightful place, and that's useful knowledge for small children. --Publishers Weekly A graceful bedtime story celebrates the beauty found in night... Hold on to Little Owl's tail feathers and soar. --Kirkus This exceptional first book by Srinivasan, a talented illustrator... follows Little Owl during his nighttime explorations... this bedtime tale may even convert children who are afraid of the dark into adventuresome night owls --New York Times Book Review This is the most visually and verbally gorgeous picture book of the year... Simple, dazzling - and simply dazzling. --The Boston Globe
