Little Owl’s Night by Divya Srinivasan is an adorably illustrated book about the forest at night and all of the animals in it. As many kids are scared of the dark, this book could be a great teaching tool about what animals are active at night. Little owl is awake and he goes exploring and saying hello to his fellow night animals. From bunnies to foxes and hedgehogs, Owl is friendly to everyone as he soars above them.
My daughter liked this book because he followed the animals to find out what they were doing, like the possums. She didn’t like the skunk much, but we did count the fireflies around the turtle and other animals. Her favorite pages are where the bunny is sleeping to hide from the fox, and she loved the bats.
Little Owl’s Night by Divya Srinivasan is vibrant and dark at the same time, the darker backgrounds make the animals come alive. Owl is very friendly, even to animals we consider predators.
