Ages 3-5. Too frightened to try flying, Little Owl remains in her tree, waiting for her mother to return. Eventually her need to find her mother overcomes her fear of flying, and she takes her first, short flight. Her mother, who's been waiting for the moment, leads Little Owl on a chase through the forest until the owlet discovers that she loves to glide through the air. Though the story is rather slight, Little Owl's predicament captures the ambivalence young children feel as they try their wings and become more independent. Sensitively drawn and washed with delicate watercolors, the illustrations create a beautiful forest setting. The woodland creatures are somewhat anthropomorphized, but the book acknowledges the predator-prey relationships existing between some of them. Carolyn PhelanFrom School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2. Little Owl is happy to sit snugly in her tree and wait for her mother to bring her food every night, especially since "out there" seems so scary. But one night, Mother is late returning, and the owlet ventures out to find her. The story is a sweet, predictable one about having the courage to try new things on one's own. The softly toned watercolor illustrations that accompany it give a good sense of light and texture in the forest at different times of day and vary from spot illustration to double-page spreads in a well-designed layout. This is a nicely done book, although it isn't distinguished in any way. A good bedtime story, it might suit larger collections.?Nina Lindsay, Vista School, Albany, CA
