About this item

A companion to the best-selling Hot Dog, Cold Dog, Frann Preston-Gannon's new lap-sized boardbook,What a Hoot! explores opposites through the antics of adorable owls.Wide-eyed and plump, Frann's colorful little owls cavort happily through these pages--sloshing through the mud in a pair of rainboots ("This one's dirty") or nose-to-nose with a rubber ducky in a sudsy tub ("That one's clean"), they embody simple opposites that kids will immediately appreciate. A surprise ending adds to the read-aloud fun.• In addition to the irresistibly cute owls, each spread includes other funny things for kids to spot, from "hidden" treats to a sneaky snail• Rhyming text makes this a great read-aloud while repetition encourages early reading skills• Story closes with a birthday party scene for all the owls Praise for Frann's previous book, Hot Dog, Cold Dog:"Preston-Gannon's simple words will have children reading along in no time. The instant I started to read the story to my son I started to do it with a sing-song rhythm and continue to do so every time I read it. The simple text and rhyming will instantly draw your child in and have them wanting you to read it over and over again!" - Pawing Through Books"This larger format board book is a bright and bold delight. Each spread shows a dog but simple opposites (new dog, old dog) become increasingly surprising and more inventive with each turn of the page." - Books For Keeps
