It’s Little Wolf’s first night to howl, he can’t wait! When Little Wolf, asks, “Can I howl now?” Big Wolf suggests he listen to a demonstration. So thrilled, Little Wolf takes a deep breath, lifts his muzzle and howls. Little Wolf tries again, adding his own flavor to the howl, but Father says. “It is not proper howling form.” Even though he knows it’s not proper form, Little Wolf lets loose with his own howl. Although it is not correct, Big Wolf’s tail wags and ears twitch and he joins in with a howl like Little Wolf’s.
An endearing story of being patient when teaching a child new skills. Filled with onomatopoeia, children will love the sounds and love the warm illustrations set in Yellowstone Park.
