Stellalunaby Janell Cannon
Synopses & Reviews
It's evening in the forest and Little Owl wakes up from his day-long sleep to watch his friends enjoying the night. Hedgehog sniffs for mushrooms, Skunk nibbles at berries, Frog croaks, and Cricket sings. A full moon rises and Little Owl can't understand why anyone would want to miss it. Could the daytime be nearly as wonderful? Mama Owl begins to describe it to him, but as the sun comes up, Little Owl falls fast asleep.
Putting a twist on the bedtime book, Little Owl's Night is sure to comfort any child with a curiosity about the night.
A beloved picture book, in a brand new board book edition
Stellaluna is a fictional female Megabat in a children's book of the same name by author Janell Cannon, written in 1993. This book aired on the PBS series Reading Rainbow in 1994.
Knocked from her mothers safe embrace by an attacking owl, Stellaluna lands headfirst in a birds nest. This adorable baby fruit bats world is literally turned upside down when she is adopted by the occupants of the nest and adapts to their peculiar bird habits. Two pages of notes at the end of the story provide factual information about bats. “Delightful and informative but never didactic; a splendid debut.”--Kirkus Reviews
Stellaluna has been charming picture-book readers for years with its moving tale of a lost little bat who learns a big lesson about friendship. This bestseller has now been adapted as a board book, the perfect format to introduce younger readers to Janell Cannon's enchanting tale and gorgeous art.
