Little Owl’s Day by Divya Srinivasan is a continuation of the previous owl story, only this time, he’s woken up during the day by a squirrel eating nuts. The owl cannot get back to sleep, so he decides to explore the woods in the daytime. While his mother tells him to go back to sleep, of course, he ignores her and head out on his own. He soon finds in the day that things are very busy and very different than they are at night.
He mistakes butterflies for moths and he notices that the flowers are open, the opposite of how they are at night. She liked the dragonflies, some of which flew backward, and she liked the turtle when he was sunbathing. When he sees the bear is awake, they talk about how the bear is never able to show the owl a rainbow and the owl is never able to show the bear the moon.
Little Owl’s Day by Divya Srinivasan is a great sequel to the little owl, and it would be great to see him grow up in a bigger and bigger owl. While there is little to no conflict in these books, they provide kids with a good sense of how the animal kingdom works during the day and at night.
