One curious little owl wants to find out what happens during the day. “Instead of staying awake all night, as little owls are supposed to do, she took a long nap and woke up just before dawn.” She awakes to a wonderful pink sky and exclaims “Wow!” She repeats this as she witnesses more of what the daytime has to offer – pretty red butterflies, white fluffy clouds, bright orange flowers. The day ends with a beautiful rainbow filling the sky with colour. Reflecting on the beauty of the daytime as the sunsets the owl exclaims “WOW!” one more time as it watches stars fill the night sky. “Too excited to sleep, the little owl stayed awake ALL night long, just like little owls are supposed to do.”
