    1. Amazing artwork and a story that's relatable for children, a great conversation starter, as the point of the story might not be as obvious to a child, encouraging them to think and open up. Definately going on my have-to-buy-for-the-next-addition-to-the-fmily-list. ;)

Baby owl Bill keeps say "I want my mummy", but the other two are more philosophical about her absence, saying that she is probably out hunting and will come back. They step out of the nest into the big dark wood to wait for her, and baby owl Sarah suggests they share a branch together, which is more cosy. Quite soon, mama owl flies back - reassuring them that although she goes away, of course she wi [...]

Great stuff!!

    10. Every year in the fall our combined editors organize a special week in which they promote children's books. A lot of activities and special attention is given at schools. It's also a promotion to get children to read more. Every year there is a special theme. This book went with the theme: Birds and other animals. As I love reading I volunteered at school to promote this theme among the collegues. In a workshop I saw this picture book. An actor was reading and playing the text. I loved it so muc [...]

    11. ‘Owl Babies’ By Martin Waddell & Patrick BensonI first read this book with a year 2 class, who, at the time were looking at different nocturnal animals.

    12. This is a great book which could support teachers to settle young children into school or nursery. It is about 3 siblings discovering their owl mother has disappeared and are left in a scary forest. The siblings provide each other with comfort and support. The baby owl repeats the well known phrase, 'I want my mummy', which can relate to settling in periods, where children who are left in a nursery/school for the first time they may also repeat this phrase. Fortunately the owl mother does come b [...]

    13. This is a GREAT book! Forget all those sugar-coated nature stories for babies. This is the story of 3 little baby owls who are alone on their branch at night. In the dark. Waiting for their mommy. Where is she? She is out hunting for dinner--mice. Very beautiful drawings of the little owls and their mom. Max has this book in NYC so I read it for Emerson earlier this year. Today, at the library there was a very nice owl display put up by one of the librarians. All books about owls (and little owl [...]

    14. Three very cute and cuddly (and slightly anxious) owl babies wake up to find their Owl Mother gone! Sarah, Percy, and Bill (the babies), each weigh in with where they think she's gone and what they think they should do. The illustrations are beautifully done, with a lot of contrast between the dark forest at night and the colorful area immediately surrounding the babies. Gentle humor and a reunion with mom at the end make for a comforting and delightful read.

    15. Nothing but love for this wonderful story of 3 baby owl, who awake to find their mother is missing. My daughter memorized this beautiful story of the mother and child bond.

    16. Children could look at the contrasting feelings of each of the owls. It encourages children to open up about how they are feeling and think about possible reasons for situations. It also encourages children to stick together and stay positive in a difficult situation.

    17. I read this book to a class during my time in a school. They loved it and I love the book. I think it is a great children’s book and although it is a little sad and you really do feel sad for the owl babies it has a lovely ending.

    18. I used this one for TT and preschool storytime on 10/4/17. The theme was owls and the big book version of this was a perfect way to start off! The kids got a kick out of Bill's refrain, and everyone was visibly relieved when Mother Owl came back. :) Super cute!

    19. Cute book with nice illustrations. It's a concept any little kid can relate to: wanting their mom to come back home.

    20. The story Owl babies written by Martin Waddell is about 3 siblings whose mother leaves them in the night and how they all feel. I read this story when I worked as a Teaching Assistant in a nursery class and we focused on this book for a week and created some fun activities around the story. I think this book a great book for children at that age because it has many repetitive phrases which the children pick up on and at the end they are able to join in with the story. Also I read this book at th [...]
