An owl named Little Hoot wants to go to bed early but his parents say he has to stay up late and play so he may be a wise old when he is older.  Very cute story.  Although I worry reading it to a child before bed because Little Hoot can stay up late what’s to say that the child will want to stay up because of the little owl.  The artwork fits the cuteness of Little Hoot temper tantrum not wanting to stay up and be a night owl.  He looks bored as he has “fun”.

Little Hoot is a charming story that plays on the usual childhood complaint of having to go to bed early. Little Owl wants to go to sleep, but his parents insist on him staying awake all night like a proper owl. My children loved this book because it is the exact opposite of their bedtime complaints. The illustrations are simple, adorable, and beautifully designed. From the use of white space to the gentle colors used, Jen Corace creates a sweet and child like escape from the often mundane and dreaded chore of going to bed.

This book is cleverly written. The lesson in it is adorable and children enjoy how it is the opposite of life as they know it. Little Pea by the same author is another favorite in our house.

This font is awful on screen. Makes an otherwise good book bad.

I bought this book for my nephew who was turning 5 years old. He loves listening to it over and over again and he also enjoys the illustrations. When he requests it for a bedtime story, adults and older siblings are happy because it is not too long and they find it humourous, as well. Even though this child is not uncooperative at bedtime, he still thinks it is funny that the owl in the story begs to go to bed like all his friends, while his parents want him to stay up longer. I highly recommend this book and plan to purchase others by this author.

Seems like a baby book i like something that is a novel but the reviews seem good but it all depends on if you like a short or a long book
