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

    This was surprisingly disappointing I've read the other two books in the series Little Pea and Little Oink and thought they were really cute I can usually turn to Amy Krouse Rosenthal's books for some solid writing and storytelling For some reason though this book was riddled with nonsensical dialogue tags and extra letters and punctuation that come across as way too casual for a published book Yes I know we're dealing with an owl He hoots I get it But I don't get the need for fourteen exclamation points on the end of one sentenceThe illustrations are cute I like Little Hoot's hooded sweatshirt but they're not uite as engaging as those in Little Oink And the story seemed like it was over so uickly in this one Little Hoot's parents say he has to stay up for one hour and play before he's allowed to go to bed So the young owl occupies himself for the reuired number of minutes and then goes to bed I get the schtick but it doesn't seem to work as well here as it did in the other booksOverall I'd probably only recommend this if it were given with the other two books As part of a set it works On its own it's a little weak

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

  4. Darcy Darcy says:

    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

    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 asleepThe 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 thingHere'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 leafbranch inspired furniture in the home a mouse patterned blanket would that be the euivalent 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 droolSo 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 techniue 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 RosenthalCorace creation Little Hoot will charm you on the basis of its own merits alone Highly recommended

    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

  7. Veronica Veronica says:

    I'm working on creating a booklist for my local public library This book was one in consideration for this listThis book had very little to offer in the way of a moral It mostly seems to be a slice of life about Little Hoot hating bedtime because it was so late It was completely adorable with beautiful illustrations and the cutest story But as far as giving a lesson on manners it does not fit the billHowever I highly recommend it for a storytime class project or something else because it's just about the cutest thing the most adorable storyline I've seen for uite some time

  8. Laura Giessler Laura Giessler says:

    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 eg 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

  9. Kathryn Kathryn says:

    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

  10. Courtney Courtney says:

    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
