When the sky grows dark
and the moon glows bright,
everyone goes to sleep . . .
except for the watchful owl!
Summary: Join owl on a moonlit journey as he watches all the other animals settle in for the night.
Animal recognition: point at all the animals and name them. Talk about the sleeping style of each animal.
My Thoughts: A sweet bedtime story that children will love to read over and over again. I love that owl appears on each page as he watches over all the sleeping animals. With wonderful illustrations and spare text, children learn how various animals sleep, including owl.
