Hooray for Today! by Brian Won- ESSENTIAL


Won, Brian. Hooray for Today!, PICTURE BOOK. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2016, $16.99. A sweet little owl is so excited to start his day (which is really at night) and find some friends to play with. He loads up his wagon with toys and sets off to visit his friends. But at each house he comes to, his friends are all much too sleepy to play. He kindly helps each one nod off and then tries someone new. Once he runs out of friends to play with he goes home in the dawn and is surprised by his friends who are finally ready to play. The pictures in this book are so great. I also loved that the owl was so understanding to his friends and helped them fall to sleep. Very cute all around. PRE-K, EL (K-3)- ESSENTIAL.
