Unwrapping Some Sweet Illustrations for You

The Book

This delightful book introduces a baby owl to the young reader.  When the sun disappears and night has fallen little owl and her parents are ready for their "day."  Together they fly quietly through the night sky guided by the light of the moon and stars. 

Along the way they meet a family of hedgehogs, a bat, and two little beetles crawling up a branch.  After such a busy adventure little Owl is very tired.  Back to the nest they fly to get some well-deserved rest before the sun comes up and the busy world awakens.  

It's lovely that the book is printed in Germany on 100% recycled paper using eco-friendly inks.  The book is part of the All Natural series.  It's story is simple and the illustrations are big and colourful... perfect for that targeted age group and perfect for a cozy bedtime story.  I highly recommend this book and all the others in the series.
