Little Hoot Box Set

The Little Books Boxed Set

By Amy Krouse Rosenthal, Illustrated by Jen Corace

What it is: An adorable set of three board books (Little Hoot, Little Pea, Little Oink) with whimsical illustrations and characters in cleverly crafted tales of bedtime, dinnertime, and clean-up time. It even comes in an cute box with two spaces to display photos.

mlp mustWhy it’s a must: You won’t find stories telling your little ones to go sleep, eat their vegetables, or clean up their rooms here. Take those stories, turn them upside-down, and you’ll get this wonderfully unique collection. In this charming and quirky series of stories, you’ll meet an owl who just wants to go to sleep, a pea who longs to eat his vegetables, and a pig who enjoys cleaning his room. Not only are the stories fun to read ‘€” they will make you and your toddler laugh out loud. We even love the beautifully detailed, modern illustrations just as much as the humorous tales. Every time we’ve read the book, we’ve found another fun detail in the pictures. Look for the ‘€œMess Hall Specials’€ when you read Little Oink, spot all types of candy in Little Pea, and find all of the animals playing hide-n-seek in Little Hoot. These books will quickly earn a place on your child’s bookshelf. It’s a great value, too. Perfect for gift-giving, this boxed set of three books is approximately the same price as only one of these books in hardcover.

Where to find it: Character Development, 209 Haverford Ave., Narberth

Price: $19.99

Bonus! Our friends at Character Development love this collection, too, and want you to get in on the fun. Mention Main Line Parent when you pick up the set, and save 10% off the purchase price!
