Genre: Picture Book, Children’s Fiction
Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐☆
Recommend to Others?: Yes

ABOUT: It’s Christmas Eve and Little Hoo should be sleeping. But there are so many interesting noises! Are there reindeer on the roof and elves in the kitchen? Join your favorite owl and find out in this Christmas story that will make December bedtime more fun for toddlers, preschoolers and even big kids who can’t help but believe in Christmas magic.


My Review: Merry Christmas Little Hoo! is a simple story with simple rhymes. It’s very visually pleasing. I enjoyed the illustrations a lot more than the story itself. Every sound Little Hoo hears – strings of onomatopoeia – get him excited and in the Christmas spirit. Readers will connect this to their own anticipation for the most wonderful time of the year. This book would be a pleasant read aloud the night before Christmas.
