really liked it

“Why do I always have to stay up and play?” complains Little Hoot. “All my other friends get to go to bed so much earlier than me!”

Yes, you read that right. Little Hoot envies his early retiring friends. And he determines that when he grows up, his kids will go to bed as early as they want.

The kindergartners had fun helping me with this story. They practiced Little Hoot’s work (pondering and staring), and loved the irony of this little creature begging to go to bed early.

At eight years old, my granddaughter Tina also appreciated the more subtle humour, like Teacher Owl’s lesson of the day on "Who, Whom," and "Whose."

But . . . Spoiler Alert! . . . at least Little Hoot escapes a bedtime story!
