It's not fair! All Little Owl wants is to go to bed at a reasonable hour, like his friends do. But no . . . Mama and Papa say little owls have to stay up late and play. So Little Owl spends all night jumping on his bed, playing on the jungle gym, and doing tricks on his skateboard but he's hooting mad about it! Children who have a hard time going to bed will love this fun twist on the universal dilemma.

    Cute illustrations throughout this little story about a young owl who just wants to go to bed at night. His parents insist he must stay up and be a proper owl. This would be fun to read with a kid who didn't want to go to bed. I enjoyed it, perhaps more than otherwise since I read it at work (it was a baby gift that a co-worker got).

    In an ironic twist on the classic bedtime procrastination story, Little Hoot is forced to stay up and play by his night owl parents. This tongue-in-cheek picture book combines darling illustrations with the humor of an unexpected point of view. Word play and puns also feature in this story, some more subtle than others for different reading and listening audiences. The illustrations are done in ink and watercolor with a predominance of curved lines and shapes. Characters and props are depicted, but everything else is left as white space, giving this book an un-busy appearance. The only illustration with text builds on the story’s use of word play, and another illustration is subtitled “FIG.1,” “FIG. 2,” and “FIG. 3” which are charming as well as funny, but probably appeal more to the adult reading than the very young child listening. The smaller size of this book as well as its content lends itself well to a nighttime read rather than a group story time environment. This book is recommended for children ages three to six.

    Little Hoot follows the same format as Little Pea. The illustrations are more detailed as there isn't much more you can do to a pea, but lots of white space to make the pictures pop. Like Little Pea, Little Hoot is an Every Kid. He likes school, he plays with his friends, and he practices his owl skills (don't your kids do that?):"Time to practice Pondering , Sweetie.""Ok, now practice your staring."But just like Little Pea, there was one thing he didn't like - bedtime. Because owls stay up late, late, late."All my other friends get to go to bed so much earlier than me!Why do I always have to stay up and play? It's not fair!"His parents explain that that's you one grows up to be a wise owl. Besides that, they "don't give a hoot" what time his friends go to bed."In this family, we goto bed late. Rules of the roost"It's the same argument children hear from their parents. This how our family works, these are the rules in our house, we want you to grow up to be strong and healthy, etc. Children relate to and sympathize with Little Hoot. He stays up late and plays, but he is NOT happy about it. He keeps asking if he can stop playing and finally his mother says gives him ten more minutes of playtime - but it's clear she's displeased by his pestering. Again, something children can relate to and, again, there is another counting opportunity. (This is great for the 3-4 year old set who love to show off their counting skills.) Finally the ten minutes are up and Little Hoot excitedly flies off to bed. His parents chase after him, offering up time honored bed time delays."But wait!" stalled Mama Owl. "What about a bedtime story?""And don't forget a glass of water!" added Papa Owl.They were too late and Little Hoot was already asleep. So his parents tuck him in and (brace yourselves, this is pretty bad word play):...they owl live happily ever after.Corny ending aside, this is a story that everyone can relate to. Kids are flabbergasted by the upside down rules and the illustrations are far more engaging this time around. There are lots of small details that kids can hunt for in the pages. I always ask my students if they can find Little Hoot's friends who are playing Hide-and-Seek with him. We also practice pondering and staring with him.Verdict:A sweet bedtime story that (in my mind) is a nice companion to Goodnight Moon. I also give this story 5 stars.

    Little Hoot is learning how to be a good owl. That means going to school and practicing his staring technique. It also means staying up late, but Little Hoot just wants to go to bed! The flipped situation of the parents telling the young owl that he can’t go to bed and must learn to stay up late creates an ironic humor that will appeal to children and their parents alike. The illustrations are simple but endearing as they show how Little Hoot stays busy until he is finally allowed to dive happily into bed.

    Little Hoot hates bedtime. Why? Because it's just so LATE and it's not FAIR and when HE grows up he'll let HIS kids go to bed as EARLY as they WANT!!!"It is, frankly, a hoot to see him grumpily playing an extra hour before bed, and to hear his parents begging him for a glass of water or a story before he tucks himself in!Definitely a must-read, even if it isn't *quite* as good as its predecessor, Little Pea.

    Little hoot is a young owl who loves to play but he also loves to sleep. However, as Papa Hoot has told him many times before, he must stay up really late in order to become an old wise owl. Little owl learns that it is difficult to stay up late and that he really dislikes staying up late. This is a great book for kids to learn that going to sleep early is necessary to become a wise grown-up. A great bedtime story.

    Little Hoot is a sequel of sorts to Little Pea (a pea who has to eat candy in order to get a veggie dessert), only this time, it is an owl who wants to go bed early like all of his friends but has to stay up late so he can “grow up to be a wise owl”. This is another “reverse psychology” story with charming illustrations by Jen Corace, and I especially loved the language in this one i.e. “I don’t give a hoot what time your friends go to bed. In this family, we go to bed late. Rules of the roost.” Fun for all those little “night owls” you know.
