How can you resist those eyes? I could not! The large, curious eyes of the baby owl on the cover simply grabbed me. I even held the book up to my fourteen and eleven-year-old children, and asked, "What do you notice?" They reponded in kind. "The eyes!" The story is a delightful way to teach a young child about the animals that roam the forest at night and how the night turns into day... something a little one often misses. Adorable!
