    This is a cute, funny story about how an owl wants to go to bed early and not stay up late.

    Adorable The illustration of the daddy owl and his coffee pot always makes me grin.

    This book had the cutest pictures and Dad explained to me that it s funny because usually little kids want to stay up late and parents want them to go to bed, but Little Hoot wants to go to bed and his parents want him to stay up Once I am wise to the ways of the world, I will understand jokes better M

    Cute story of a little owl begging to go to bed early and the parents trying to keep him up with excuses children often use to stay up Made me smile.

    Here s how a normal day is for Little Hoot Like most owls he goes to school, plays with his friends, and practices his pondering and staring That s fine He s fond of all of that What he doesn t like, however, is bedtime Every night Little Hoot wants to go to bed at a reasonable hour like his other non owl friends, and every night it s the same story If you want to grow up to be a wise owl, you must stay up late On this particular night Little Hoot begs to go to bed but his mom lets him know in no uncertain terms that he must stay up one whole hour before she ll let him sleep Finally, after counting down the last ten minutes of play, Little Hoot is allowed to go to bed And before his mother and father can engage him in a drink of water or a bedtime story, Little Hoot was already fast asleep The craziest thing about Little Hoot , and I don t know why I was so surprised by this, was that it actually made me crave sleep By having a protagonist who s sole goal in this story is to bed down for the night you, the reader, really feel for him Boy, that bed really does look comfy doesn t it Author Amy Krouse Rosenthal s tone in this tale is pitch perfect She twists the reader s expectations perfectly so that child readers may find themselves utterly baffled on a first reading of this tale They may even be baffled on a second or third re reading Eventually, though, I have faith that the young uns will catch on and find Rosenthal s new take on an old childhood complaint a lot of fun to play with The dialogue works pretty effectively as well Ten minutes of playing, Mister And please don t ask me again, will ring true, if slightly skewed, in than a few ears I also loved how Little Hoot s ways of keeping awake involved the activities that kids partake of when they themselves are trying to keep from falling asleep Playing with swords , building forts, jumping on the bed, that sort of thing.Here s the deal with illustrator Jen Corace uh she s awesome Not very descriptive but whatcha gonna do Maybe it s her design background and alternative feel, but when Corace illustrates a book, that book has done been illustrated, consarn it Look at the endpapers of Little Hoot for a start There is a leafy theme to this book Little Hoot s bed is a mix of leaves and branches His toys are sticks And the endpapers are a subtle and lovely burnt umber backdrop with light orange leaf outlines and a sole motion line zooming about the pages for kicks The illustrations within the book are also filled with small details that will reward adult readers a kindness to those parents who will hopefully get to read this book over and over for a fifty fifth time There is the owl teacher who is covering the words Who, Whom, and Whose There is Little Hoot s father, brewing himself a stiff pot of coffee for the long night ahead There is the leaf branch inspired furniture in the home, a mouse patterned blanket would that be the equivalent of a human blanket with a pattern of cheese sandwiches , and Little Hoot s stuffed animal toy And like Rosenthal and Corace s previous book Little Pea there is a final page where the sleeping Little Hoot is seen in FIG 1 snooze , FIG 2 snore and FIG 3 drool.So let s hold this book up to the light and give it a final glance and a gander It s beautiful from a design standpoint, and yet its child friendly pictures and adorable characters will appeal to all readers It has a smart story and a fun plot but at the same time the author has written a bedtime tale that will partake of the old reverse psychology technique and maybe even get some kids to WANT to go to sleep It is funny It is memorable I say we have a winner Though it bears some definite similarities to a previous Rosenthal Corace creation, Little Hoot will charm you on the basis of its own merits alone Highly recommended.

    I read this book after Little Oink and liked it even than that one On to Little Pea next Rosenthal weaves owl words all kinds of who ing, give a hoot, etc and behaviors staring, staying up late into the story in a very understated way There is a lot to unpack in the illustrations, and just enough complex vocabulary e.g ponder introduced to make it palatable and digestible Similar to the other books in the series, the twist is that Little Hoot begs to be allowed to go to bed, but her parents say that she must stay up late Reminded me some of her Bedtime for Mommy too, with the twist on the bedtime routine.

    Clever example of reverse psychology as a storyline This book would be great for pre K 1st grade Little Hoot is an owl that does not want to stay up late like most owls His parents make him because that is what little owls must do The illustrations are adorable with crisp design I wish I could illustrate like this author Children will fall in love with the little Hoot and the story is a great discussion starter about nighttime rountines

    So cute And a hoot indeed I love the clever reversal in this story Little Hoot WANTS to go to bed early, the same as all his friends it is so boring and frustrating to have to stay up late and keep on playing Just as in Little Pea Rosenthal turns a child s typical argument upside down and her protagonist argues for the thing the children usually argue against Delightful illustrations, too.

    The story Little Hoot by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and illustrated by Jen Corace teaches you a why you should appreciate Bedtime Little Owl liked many things except one thingBedtime I like this book because it teached my brother a lesson and the lesson was to appreciate what you have because others may not have what you have I would recommend this book to kids that sleep late so they sleep early.

    Little Hoot s non owl friends can go to bed as early as they want, but when you re an owl, you have to stay up late, late, late.When my now elementary aged kids were in preschool, Little Hoot and the other two books in the trio of topsy turvy morality tales were a nightly staple The wacky conflict and the detailed illustrations of a mistreated little owl forced to stay up late and play make this a book we still read today.
