Laugh and count along with ten silly, sleepy owls in this adorable countdown to bedtime book! 

Ten little owls are playing in a tree,
hopping and hooting happily.
But Mama Owl calls from down in the nest,
“It’s bedtime now; it’s time to rest.” 

Recently, my little girl has been interested in Owls. In fact, the other day she asked me to redo her room with them. So, having the chance to read her the ‘10, 9, 8...Owls Up Late!’ board book, I knew it would make her really happy. 

The book offers a cute story starting with 10 little owls that want to stay up all night and not go to bed. Each time the little owls are either having too much fun, telling stories, telling jokes and more. Then each time Mama Owl tells them ‘It’s Time To Rest’, then one little owl goes to the nest, until there is only one little owl left that gets carried to rest. There is cute rhyming throughout the counting book from the beginning to the end. The illustrations really make the book even more cute and fun. 

Throughout the book there are cut-outs for the owls and numbers on each page. The last two pages are numbers and owls to have fun with for more practice counting. This cute little book is perfect for bedtime stories to allow your little one to interact with the story as well as practice and learn how to count. Plus, counting owls at night makes it even better since they are nocturnal animals. 

About the Author: Georgiana Deutsch lives in a tiny flat in London with a husband, a piano, and piles of beautiful books. When not writing, she can usually be found baking brownies and dreaming of owning a Labrador called Watson.

In our home Tuesdays can be extremely busy. First there’s school, which brings homework in the evening, my youngest has dance and tumbling class, then we go through the nightly routines. We have fallen into the habit of me picking up dinner and bringing it home. However, my family and I are getting tired of eating out. I, personally, love to prepare home cooked meals, but on those busy Tuesdays, I can’t seem to find the time to do all the prep, cooking. and then clean up. I hate leaving a mess when I go to bed.
