As the sun begins to set behind the treetops, all the little creatures who live in one very large tree settle down to sleep for the night. The baby birds, the baby squirrels, and the baby mice all snuggle up in their nests. Even the baby rabbits in a nearby burrow are ready for sleep. But far out on a tree branch, one very unusual baby animal is wide awake and making a lot of noise. The mothers and fathers of the baby birds, squirrels, mice, and rabbits decide that they should try singing and rocking the noisy baby to sleep, but all their efforts fail. It's a baby owl-and owls always sleep during the day, then stay awake the whole night through. Here's a charming little bedtime story for toddlers, illustrated on every page with exceptionally fine full-color illustrations of woodland animals.
