9781554532636: Berkeley's Barn Owl Dance

This is a lyrical and reassuring story about growing up and leaving the barn to dance on one's own. At the biggest barn owl dance of the year, the Leave the Nest Fall Fest, keen dancer Berkeley shines as usual. Next moonrise, however, she and her fellow fledglings Bo and Bree must leave home. Though Berkeley is frightened, the winking, smiling, laughing moon lights her way. After thousands of silent wingbeats, she finds a new audience, and Flippity, Tappity, Clap Clap Clap, Berkeley's new barn dance begins. Berkeley's Barn Owl Dance ushers children into an unseen animal world, while the young owl's journey will help them prepare to spread their wings and fly on their own.

About the Author:

First-time author Tera Johnson likes to shake a tail feather, too, and enjoys tap-dancing with her own owlets, er, kids. When she isn't dancing or writing, Tera works at the Calgary Public Library and takes great pleasure in sharing storytime with young readers. Tera lives in Calgary, Alberta, with her husband and their two sons.

From School Library Journal:

PreS—Berkeley Barn Owl loves to dance. On the night of the Leave the Nest Fall Fest, the eve before the fledglings go off to find their own homes, she wows the crowd with her wing flapping and talon tapping. When morning comes, the little owl is hesitant to leave her parents' nest, but off she flies with her brother and sister, each of them looking for, and finding, a perfect place to live. In Howells's digitally designed illustrations, set against stark white pages, the owlets are black line cartoon drawings filled in with several shades of brown, their pale faces the distinctive heart shape of their species. The pale yellow of the smiling round moon, soft greens in trees and grass, and one pink pig represent the only other colors. Natural details in the story accurately portray the habits of barn owls, which usually lay three to six eggs, roost in tree hollows (as do Berkeley's parents) or in barn lofts (Berkeley's new home) by day, and fledge their young for 50 to 55 days, teaching them hunting skills before they fly off to independence. Johnson has created a sweet, somewhat instructional story with lilting text that lends itself to being read aloud.—Susan Scheps, Shaker Heights Public Library, OH
