A copy of this book was provided by the publisher in exchange for my honest review 

I'm your baby owl. You don't need a new one. Little Owl isn't pleased to hear that there's a baby owl in the egg Mummy has laid. So Mummy pretends it might be a baby penguin ... or crocodile ... or elephant. In the fun of imagining different kinds of siblings, Little Owl realises that a baby owl might just be the best thing of all.

A gentle, lovely story about the arrival of a new sibling, addressing fears that Mummy's love will stop. Debi Gliori is a bestselling, award-winning author and writing for the first time for another illustrator: the talented Alison Brown.

What happens when Little Owl finds out Mummy's new egg will have a little owl in it? His Mummy gets creative, and easy his worries by pretending the egg may have different animals in it. From a baby dragon to a penguin and more. Through her pretending, Little Owl tells her why that wouldn't work and soon realizes that having a baby owl isn't so bad after all. He also learns that no matter what, his Mummy will still love her first baby owl. 

Really cute story with equally cute illustrations. We enjoyed the light hearted humor in the book. It's definitely a cute story and worth reading through. This book is great for easing the worry of any child who is about to be welcome a new baby into their family.

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
