Little Owl, Little Owl Can't You Sleep?
Wiggle and Giggle
Publisher: Campbell Books
Little Owl can’t sleep, as the forest creatures are all too noisy. A little mouse, however, is trying to keep very quiet…
Parents and babies will adore sharing this colourful board book, which is perfect for bedtime. Beautifully designed and produced, the slots and slides are strongly robust and perfect for tiny fingers to explore. The natural setting and strong storyline of Jo Lodge’s gently humorous rhyming text, which incorporates a hide and seek adventure with animal noises and behaviour, is very pleasing.
Lodge is a prolific author-illustrator for babies and toddlers, and knows exactly what parents and little ones are looking for in her characterful, bright and reassuring books.
The Wiggle and Giggle series pairs silliness with lots of interaction, and, in this case, ends in a snoozy bedtime. Everyone will be deliciously sleepy by lights out!
