Tonight’s storytime was I’m Not Cute! by Jonathan Allen.
Baby owl takes a walk through the forest and encounters other woodland animals who all think he’s cute and fluffy.
Baby owl disagrees. Vehemently. He thinks he’s a “huge and scary hunting machine”. But when his mum agrees with him, he suddenly remembers he is cute too. Fortunately his mum knows he’s both.
This is one of my favourite books at the moment because it epitomises my two year old (tired temper tantrums and all) – she may be little but she is fierce, unless she’s a little bit tired and just needs a cuddle instead.
Our other favourite stories featuring owls include Wow Said The Owl, Owl Babies and Oliver’s Wood.
