    Comments about Five Little Owls:

    This is a really great book that really engages young children. I've been reading this to my son since he was two . Now that he's three he has completely memorised the rhymes and loves the onomotopeia ..To whit to hoo....and enjoys hooting when we read the book to him. Brings lots of fun to our family reading time with our child.

        Comments about Five Little Owls:

        My experience with this book involves sitting with a three year old on one knee and a eighteen month old on the other. It is perfect for reading aloud. By teaching children how to count the owls from one to five they are able to embark on a journey where the world on the page comes to life with sounds and owl noises at page turning time. It is easy to find the owls so children feel success then laugh when making the owl noises. Be ready to read over and over and never skip a page... They get to know it too well. I prefer the hradback picture book but a paperback makes it that much more affordable for all families of young children. Mark is a Master with works.
