Little Owl's mommy has laid a beautiful egg with a new baby owl inside, and Little Owl isn't pleased. He's her baby owl--she doesn't need a new one!

But what if it's not an owl inside the egg? What if it's a baby penguin . . .
or a crocodile . . .
or a dragon?!

It's fun to imagine, but maybe a baby owl is the best thing after all.

Master storyteller Debi Gliori explores the feelings involved in the impending arrival of a new sibling in this sweetly silly and heartwarming story, lovingly illustrated by bestselling artist Alison Brown.

Despite not being expecting my family adored this story. Reluctant child learns, with Mama's help, that welcoming someone new into the family can be a good thing after all. It explores though the child's ideas and fears what's to come. It's not the parent making a futile effort to get the child to see from their eyes that having another baby is a good thing. We're brought to the child's perspective, and that's what makes this an amazing book in my view.

Little Owl isn't sure he wants a new baby owl so he and his mommy decide to think about all the things that could inside of the egg instead. Predictably, little owl comes around to the idea of a new sibling. Cute, but not earth shaking, will fit the bill for parents prepping little ones for a new arrival.
