Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A tender tale to remind the youngest of children that Mommy always comes back.

"I want my mommy!" Three baby owls awake one night to find their mother gone, and they cant help but wonder where she is. What is she doing? When will she be back? What scary things move all around them? Stunning illustrations from striking perspectives capture the anxious little owls as they worry. Not surprisingly, joyous flapping and dancing and bouncing greet the mothers return, lending a celebratory tone to the ending of this comforting tale. Never has the plight of young ones who miss their mother been so simply told or so beautifully rendered.

I read this book with a group of pre-school children. They fell in love with it. They made text to self connections. They also had fun acting out the story. Three children came to the front of the room and played the parts of the baby owls. When it came their turn, they "read" their parts superbly. They had so much fun with the book I had to read it each day for a whole week having different students come up and act out the parts. This book is wonderfully written and illustrated. I believe that children of all ages would enjoy it. It is a great book to talk to children about fear. They can relate to the owls fear of missing their mother.
