Children's Corner: Little Owl's Night

I love this book! It is an ingenious way of demystifying the dark. Little Owl's world consists of darkness and as we follow his night, we learn what goes on in the dark. There are animals at work and at play. There is so much beauty to the night-world through Little Owl's eyes. The daytime is just as mysterious to him as the nighttime is for children and before bed he asks his mother to tell him again what day time is like.

This is a fantastic book for kids who are afraid of the dark, or just plain curious about it. I love that it puts a fresh perspective on things and gives children and adults a new way of looking at a common fear. It open's ones mind to possibilities and isn't that what reading is all about?

While mine aren't scared of the dark they don't love it either, so this would be a great one for them. Plus we have an owl in the woods outside our house. :)
