#blogbookaday: Hooray for Today!

7 Jun

Hooray for Today.jpgSummary:  “When the moon is up, Owl is wide awake and ready for fun: “Hooray for today! Would you like to play?” But everyone says, “Not now! I’m sleepy!” Owl’s playday gets lonely fast as each friend turns her away—until sunrise, when Owl discovers a friendly surprise. Perfect for little ones learning the art of patience, Hooray for Today! celebrates playtime, sharing, and friendship.  ” (Taken from Goodreads)

Review: The story of an owl who would very much like to play with her friends, but everyone is sleepy! Then as Owl is heading off to bed as the sun rises, she’s greeted by all her friends ready to play!

Personal Reaction: I liked this book because even though Owl kept getting rejected, she was so kind to her friends making sure they were comfortable before going to sleep and then was ready to play after a quick nap! This is similar in style to Brian Won’s first book – Hooray for Hat! and follows the same theme of friendship and sharing – the perfect stories for little ones to enjoy and learn from!

#blogbookaday (1)This is a new idea I’m trying on my blog this year that was inspired by @donalynbooks and @heisereads – to provide a brief review of a picture book every day of 2018. You’ll get a brief summary of the story, a review of the content, illustrations and theme, my personal reaction to the book and all the pertinent publication information! Enjoy!
