Published by Macmillan Children’s Books, 2016.
Little Owl is curious about the daytime and so, instead of sleeping through it as normal, she decides to wake up just before dawn. Awestruck, she admires the world around her: the sky, the sunshine, the trees and the flowers.
This is a book of colours. We see the contrast between the indigo darkness of Owl’s nighttime world and the bright, rainbow colours of the daytime.
Tim Hopwood’s illustrations are beautiful. I especially like the patterns and textures that he uses for the leaves, and the way he’s painted the sky. Owl’s wide-eyed amazement is particularly endearing too.
This book is a lovely way to introduce your child to colours and it’s a joyful celebration of the natural world.
Suitable from birth.
Thank you to Macmillan Children’s Books for sending me this book to review and to Toppsta for organising the giveaway.
