It's Christmas Eve and Little Hoo should be sleeping. But there are so many interesting noises! Are there reindeer on the roof and elves in the kitchen? Join your favorite owl and find out in this Christmas story that will make December bedtime more fun for toddlers, preschoolers and even big kids who can't help but believe in Christmas magic. (Toddler/Preschool)
Utterly charming! (5 stars)
Don't tell anybody but this book gives me warm fuzzies. I usually read any children's titles I get for review before I ever share them with my preschooler so I can decide when to read them to her and this one was so cute I couldn't wait to share it with her.
The illustrations are bright and really adorable and the story well paced enough that kids in the 2-5 range are going to be kept interested. My daughter loved it so much she made me read it three times in a row the first time I shared it with her then immediately began begging me to buy the other Little Hoo titles. Not only are they very well priced, they're a subtly educational as well. In this particular story Little Hoo is hearing sounds and thinking they are one thing when they are really another, which I felt provokes critical thinking and comparison skills.
We loved Merry Christmas, Little Hoo! and would recommend it to our friends.
