What did you like about the book? This sweet story follows a little owl who is bored in her nest. She ventures out to try new things. None of which can she do, but her mother finds her and teaches her that she can do something special as well. The illustrations of this adorable owl tugged at my heartstrings right along with the story.
Anything you did not like about the book? Not a thing, it was adorable!
