30 Days of Books: Day 05 – A book that makes you happy.
I’m cheating because it’s a tie between Little Hoot by Amy Rosenthal and Smitten by David Gordon.
Little Hoot is a bedtime story about an owl who desperately wants to go to sleep, but his parents make him stay awake all night because that’s what owls do. The illustrations are really cute, and I always want to curl up and take a nap at the end. This reverse psychology is supposed to lull your child to sleep, but I don’t know if it will work as well for them as it does for me!
Smitten is about a sock and a mitten who have lost their matches, and they need to keep each other company in the big city. Knitters will love this one because they end up knitting when one of them gets a snag. Too adorable for words! It’s very colorful, and the friendship between the two makes me smile.
