Little Owl (like many of us in the education field!) just wants to go to sleep, but his parents want him to stay up like a good little owl. From the same team (Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Jen Corace) that created Little Pea, we get a fun picture book that thinks in a different way. I'm all for exposing students to books that are clever and funny as opposed to schmaltzy and preachy. Little Hoot is indeed a hoot to read.
Read Little Hoot, Little Pea, and Little Oink for lessons on comparing and contrasting. Students will be able to make text-text connections as well.
