What's the Story?:

From "Did you know that chipmunks love to stay up past their bedtime? Or that dragons cry at happy endings? I bet you’d never have guessed that iguanas sometimes get homesick at sleepovers.

Sara O’Leary pulls back the curtain on the animal world and gives us an absolutely charming little one-line “fact” about one animal for each letter of the alphabet. Kids will love to see their own quirks reflected in these adorably rendered creatures, and perhaps will be comforted to know that—just like them—narwhals can be perfectly happy all on their own and quail also get tired of being told to be quiet."

My Two Cents:

"Owls are Good at Keeping Secrets" is an adorable book, perfect for kids who are learning their letters and spelling. My girls are three so we spend a lot of time on recognizing letters and talking about what words start with which letters. This book is filled with funny phrases that had my girls laughing. I love books that are a good blend of fun and learning and this is definitely one of those!

I also have to mention the art in the book. The illustrations are gorgeous with adorable animals and nice vivid colors. My girls spent a lot of time looking at the pictures!

This was a very enjoyable book!
