Little Owl's Day

A squirrel is chittering. Bees are buzzing. The sun is high in the sky. And Little Owl is supposed to be asleep, but when he wakes up early, he’s just too curious to close his eyes again. A blue sky companion to LITTLE OWL'S NIGHT, LITTLE OWL'S DAY is just right for young children and is the perfect sunny antidote to any gloomy winter days.
