Kids always want to do the things their parents say they can't do...Little Owl, he just wants to go to bed early. But, nooooooo. His parents say stay up and play. He will grow up into a wise owl if he just follows the rules! One whole hour Little Hoot must stay up...so he plays swords, builds a fort, jumps on the bed, and pleads with his mom to go to bed. And, after the time is up, he climbs into bed, and out as soon as his little head hits the bed.
A playful twist on following the rules of bedtime.
