Little Wise Guy, our friendly owl, plays an important character in Sally Saffer's book entitled A Word To The Wise Is Sufficient. Two young children, Tamara and Justin, are out playing in the woods and having so much fun when Little Wise Guy, sitting up on a tree limb, notices it is getting dark. He tries to warn them that it will soon be dark and they should head home. Justin and Tamara are having so much fun they choose to ignore the owl, even after he told them, 'A Word To The Wise Is Sufficient.' Soon it does get dark and now the children can't find their way out of the woods toward home. If only they had heeded what the owl was trying to tell them. Will the children learn a valuable lesson during this event?

This is a fine book by author Sally Saffer and one that could easily be used in a teaching moment during bedtime stories or in libraries. This would be a great tool for teachers to use as well when trying to help children understand meanings of words.
