Owl Moon

Owl Moon
Jan Yolen

A little girl goes hunting in the dark of night with her father. They go deep into the woods, hoping for a glimpse of an owl. She stays quiet as her father calls to the owl.

Lyrical sentences and colorful illustrations make this one of my new favorite children's books. My children enjoy it as much as I do. The slight rhyming pattern to the words make it a very easy book to read. The descriptions of the world around the child help the reader visualize the hike as they go owl hunting. We will definitely be keeping and sharing this book.
