Owl Babies

We have an owl in our woods. Late at night in the wintertime I’ve heard him hooting. One night a couple years ago I was in our upstairs bathroom and I opened the window and hooted back. It was a funny thing to have a “conversation” with an owl at 2 o’clock in the morning!

The three baby owls in this book were very quickly renamed Madeleine, Henry and Charlotte.

I especially love the rich full page illustrations.
