Perfect Picture Book Friday
Hoot & Honk Just Can’t Sleep (Sterling Children’s Books, 2017) by Leslie Helakoski is one of those picture books I read and like. But when I reread it I like it even more.
As the title says, these bird can’t sleep. Because they are each in the wrong nest.
It makes me smile. I love the mirroring in the story. The text is sparse, but just enough. The illustrations are delightful. Hoot and Honk would make fun stuffed animals. Can I have a set? 😉
Leslie is the author and illustrator. Her website says, “Books for Laughing, Living and Learning,” which fits this book. There are Hoot and Honk activities here. Read about all her other books here.
Meanwhile, I’m off for another rereading.
