It's evening in the forest and Little Owl wakes up from his day-long sleep to watch his friends enjoying the night. Hedgehog sniffs for mushrooms, Skunk nibbles at berries, Frog croaks, and Cricket sings. A full moon rises and Little Owl can't understand why anyone would want to miss it. Could the daytime be nearly as wonderful? Mama Owl begins to describe it to him, but as the sun comes up, Little Owl falls fast asleep.

Putting a twist on the bedtime book, Little Owl's Night is sure to comfort any child with a curiosity about the night.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Praise for LITTLE OWL’S NIGHT by Divya Srinivasan:

"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." — Publisher's Weekly 

"A graceful bedtime story celebrates the beauty found in night... Hold on to Little Owl's tail feathers and soar." — Kirkus Reviews

"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

My granddaughter is 3. I bought this book for her. She loves animals and liked the illustrations in this book. What she didn't like (and I didn't either), was the fact that several dead fish and fish skeletons were pictured in this book. Yes, fish are food for many other animals, but very young children don't need to be reminded of this in a storybook. I was disappointed with this. Otherwise, the adventures of the Little Owl were fun for my granddaughter to have read to her.

I got 2 of these, one for each of my 3 year old grandchildren. I really love the story and the pictures but have not gotten reaction from the kids yet as they are for Christmas.

My 2 1/2 year old loves having this read to her at bed time. The illustrations are gorgeous (I would buy posters to hang if I could!), and the story is incredibly sweet. I also like that the story is not filled with gibberish like so many other children's books. I am 100% pleased with this title and would recommend it to anyone with a curious toddler or beyond!

The amazing illustrations in this book assist in telling this sweet story of a little owl in the forest. My two year old daughter loves hearing this book at bedtime. Great addition to any little one's library.

It is a simple story about the different events that happen in the forest that many nocturnal animals witness, but other animals miss out on because they are asleep. 4.5 stars.

owl bedtime story begins in the morning, bedtime story time

Absolutely adorable board book about Little Owl's nightly adventures and who he visits and sees on his adventure. The illustrations make the book, with Little Owl's big eyes and the bats coming home in the morning as he listens to his mom's tale of how the night ends and the day begins. This is great for the little ones.
