January 2020 Book of the Month | A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month January 2020
Charming Little Owl returns for a new amusing and reassuring story about an everyday occurrence that will be familiar to all: bedtime! Mummy Owl does everything she can to make sure Little Owl is all ready for bed. She’s read a bedtime story – and then one more on the promise that Little Owl will settle afterwards. And she’s tucked Little Owl in with all his favourite things. But Little Owl can’t sleep because it is too dark, too noisy and because he is too excited about seeing his Grandma and Grandpa Owl. Mummy Owl uses all her best powers of invention and story telling to make sure Little Owl can go to sleep!
Julia Eccleshare's Picks for January 2020
Jane Eyre A Retelling by Tanya Landman
Little Owl's Bedtime by Debi Gliori
Fred by Posy Simmons
Little Owl doesn't want to go to bed . . . His pillow is too lumpy, his quilt is too hot and what is that strange snorting noise he can hear? Perhaps one last bedtime story will help or maybe, just maybe, Mummy Owl has an ingenious way to soothe her restless Little Owl and help him get a good night's sleep . . .
From the creators of Little Owl's Egg and Little Owl's First Day comes another irresistible story that is perfectly reassuring for all wakeful little night owls.
