Picture Books

Little Owl discovers the wonders of daytime! Little Owl has always been curious about daytime, but he's never been able to stay awake past dawn. Until now. When squirrel wakes him up with his loud chatter, Little Owl blinks open his eyes and realizes that the large light in the sky is the sun! Soon, he's flying through the forest, exploring a familiar landscape but filled with unfamiliar sights - colourful butterflies, singing birds, and dragonflies skimming the water. Little Owl is in awe. He knows he should fly back to his mama, but not before he sees his first rainbow glinting in the sun.
