A bit of beauty for you to enjoy. I love the sensitivity of this story and its illustrations. Always amazed at the character development that happens with just a few words and a few pictures. You get to know these three little owls so quickly. It’s a good bedtime story ?, especially when little ones have worries. The little owls are worried because their mom is off hunting. But it all works out just fine in the end.
Owl Babies has won lots of awards?. Award winners are usually good picks when looking for books to read to your kids. Another great way to find good books is to pick ANY books published by Candlewick Press. Every book we have ever read that was published by them has been a sure win.
This book first published as a picture book. The book is available in board book format (as shown). The text length of the story is appropriate for young children (around age 3). The illustrations were done with black ink and watercolor crosshatching. The black background is actually pretty rare among picture books. Good for age 3 to 10.
