Birthday Month Giveaway on May 23, 2017 - Hoot & Honk Just Can't Sleep

Ever since my grandsons were babies, they have enjoyed having books read to them - and now as they learn to read, they enjoy reading for themselves, too. So, when I was invited to review Hoot & Honk Just Can't Sleep, I was happy to say, "Yes!"

Sterling Children's Books says; "Dark sky. Wake or doze? Some eyes open. Some eyes close. Some chicks like day, others like night. Some sleep in the dark, and some in the light. Hoot, an adorable owlet, and Honk, a fuzzy gosling, have just hatched—but their eggs got switched and now they’re in the wrong nests. Will they find their way home? Leslie Helakoski’s gentle, lilting verse and irresistible illustrations make the perfect bedtime story as they capture two adorable babies exploring the world for the first time."

I found Hoot & Honk Just Can't Sleep to be a fun story, great especially for bedtime, but any time as well! My three year old grandson loves this story and my five year old grandson is having fun reading it for himself . . . which makes me a happy grandma! This story is short with beautiful illustrations - perfect for reading, then reading again.
