LoveReading View on Little Owl's Bedtime

Charming Little Owl returns for a new amusing and reassuring story about an everyday occurrence that will be familiar to all: bedtime!

Mummy Owl does everything she can to make sure Little Owl is all ready for bed. She’s read a bedtime story – and then one more on the promise that Little Owl will settle afterwards.  And she’s tucked Little Owl in with all his favourite things. But Little Owl can’t sleep because it is too dark, too noisy and because he is too excited about seeing his Grandma and Grandpa Owl. Mummy Owl uses all her best powers of invention and story telling to make sure Little Owl can go to sleep!

Julia Eccleshare M.B.E

Little Owl's Bedtime Synopsis

Little Owl doesn't want to go to bed . . . His pillow is too lumpy, his quilt is too hot and what is that strange snorting noise he can hear? Perhaps one last bedtime story will help or maybe, just maybe, Mummy Owl has an ingenious way to soothe her restless Little Owl and help him get a good night's sleep . . .

From the creators of Little Owl's Egg and Little Owl's First Day comes another irresistible story that is wonderfully reassuring for all wakeful little night owls.

Perfect for little hands, this beautifully illustrated board book is ideal for soothing nighttime worries.
