Comments The Sleepy Owl

The Sleepy Owl: 05/04/05

Sean's current favorite book is The Sleepy Owl. It's the story of an owl who over sleeps each night and misses playing with her owl buddies. She tries to befriend a young boy who gives her an alarm clock to help her wake up when he's awake. Of course this works out disastrously for her and her friends so the alarm clock has to be returned. In the process though, the little owl does learn how to wake up on time and the little boy learns something about owls.

It's the perfect story for Sean, a little boy who loves owls and has a pair he likes to visit on the weekends. Besides having loads of adorable owl drawings in it, it also has a clock and an owl painted kite. Sean also has a clock and an owl kite so he sees a lot of himself in this book. Last night we even had to tuck in The Sleepy Owl book when we tucked Sean in for bed.
