Kids Book Tuesday!
This book was cute and innocent. The author does a great job at bringing little owl to life, despite the fact that the book is very simple in it’s formatting. It’s similar to Kipper the Dog in that there isn’t much going on, yet despite the lack of graphics the story still entertains young children.
While reading the story you will notice that the font is not traditional but rather dances along the pages as if it were an image itself. What’s more is that there are only three colors used through out the entirety of the book.
This particular book is not without a great lesson. Little Owl, who I imagine to be a three year old is given a gift by his mother that he does not love. In fact, he does not like it at all. Mother Owl, as we understand, created this gift herself with the well being of her baby owl in mind. Little Owl proceeds to mistakenly loose his gift after trying a variety of ways to get rid of it, including sending it as a gift to his grandfather.
When Mother Owl discovers that Little Owl was in fact able to be rid of his gift, she has him recreate a new one. By now I assume that you know this gift is a scarf. That’s right, Mother Owl teaches Little Owl how to knit a scarf himself and once he discovers just how much work his mother put into his gift he becomes much more appreciative.
