Rosenthal, Amy Krouse. 2008. Little Hoot.
I just have to say I love Amy Krouse Rosenthal. I just love her. Some of my favorite picture books--in recent years--have been written by her.
Little Hoot's life would be so perfect, so great if it wasn't for one small problem. His parents MAKE him stay up late. While Little Hoot's friends all have early bedtimes, Little Hoot must stay up late and play owl games. And he does not like it, not one little bit! In fact, Little Hoot at one point stomps off saying, "When I grow up, I'm going to let my kids go to bed as early as they want." Little Hoot is a playful twist on the traditional bedtime story. And it's such an enjoyable little twist!
