Little Pea by Amy Krouse Rosenthal came out in time to give to Julia for her second birthday. Now, Avery got Little Hoot, recently released by Chronicle Books, for her third birthday. What's genius is that both titles fit both kids. Julia is our "selective eater" like Little Pea and Avery is our night owl, unlike Little Hoot.
Little Hoot is the story of an owl who doesn't want to stay up all night like all owls are expected to do. A GREAT twist on the nightly bedtime battle so many face, in this book it's the parents that are offering water and one more story to prolong Little Hoot's bedtime. The pictures are adorable, the story is clever. It's another Amy Krouse Rosenthal LEGEND and, one of Avery's favorite birthday presents.
