Little Owl Lost by Chris Haughton

It's picture book time. I picked this one off the shelf of my local library with my 2.5 year old. We sat and read it in the library and we sat and read it at home. He does like owls, but the real fun for him in this book is the silliness of the squirrel trying to help baby owl find mom. Little owl takes a tumble out of his nest and lands on the forest floor. Squirrel comes to his aid and makes it his mission to help owl find mom. Owl describes mom as big and squirrel enthusiastically brings back... a bear. Hm. Not exactly right. My son loved that. "That's not owl!"

I dig the retro illustrations and the overwhelming adorableness of owl. I'm looking forward to seeing more by debut author/illustrator Chris Haughton.

Of note, original title in UK - A Bit Lost

It does look awfully adorable. I haven't seen it, but I'm going to look for it now.

My strategy at my library is to search through a section at a time. If not it becomes so overwhelming for me to pick titles. This week it was the H's and Little Owl Lost was quite a score. It would make a fun storytime since the kids would love the surprises of the different animals that squirrel finds. And a great mother's day story!
