I'm Not Reading!

by Jonathan Allen


Board book

Barnes and Noble Indiebound
Adorable, irresistible Baby Owl (I'm Not Sleepy!) is back—and now in board! This time, he has a beloved book in hand and he's eager to begin. But then along comes Tiny Chick, who begs Baby Owl to read to him. Before you can say “once upon a time,” they're joined by a crowd: Tiny Chick's brothers and sisters and cousins and friends all want a story, too. Soon Baby Owl is smothered by lots of fluffy chicks. How can he EVER read? Fantastic fun with a favorite character.
“. . . displays a nice mix of charm and mayhem . . . A sweet, cozy ending suggests a perfect bedtime story. Fun and reassuring.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Warm-bright, soft digital illustrations provide a cozy background . . . A cozy, reassuring ending hints at a perfect bedtime read for children. Readers will understand Baby Owl's toughest obstacle when it comes to reading aloud in a story circle and giggle at the rowdiness the chicks cause. This sweet, quick read is great for story time and best paired with Allen's I'm Not Sleepy! and I'm Not Cute!” —School Library Journal
