If there was one bird we absolutely adore, it has to be OWL!  We love Owl,  and even before we talk about Owl Books here are some interesting facts about the Wise one

  1. They are nocturnal creatures meaning they are awake in the night and sleep during the day.
  2. There are more than 200 different kinds of owls!
  3. They can turn their all the way [freaky]
  4. And a group of Owls is called a Parliament!

So here are our very favorite OWL Books –

Owl Books

It’s evening in the forest and Little Owl wakes up from his day-long sleep to watch his friends enjoying the night. Hedgehog sniffs for mushrooms, Skunk nibbles at berries, Frog croaks, and Cricket sings. A full moon rises and Little Owl can’t understand why anyone would want to miss it. Could the daytime be nearly as wonderful? Mama Owl begins to describe it to him, but as the sun comes up, Little Owl falls fast asleep.

Owl Babies by Chris Waddel

Owl Books

We have talked about this book before and it is one of my favorite Owl Books of all times! One night the owl babies wake up and Mother owl is gone. The three owls react differently to this. The expression on the faces of the baby owls conveys so much and fits in exactly with the simple text as the baby owls wait and wait. Though they try to be brave, they get more anxious as the night goes on and with each noise in the dark wood, they get more and more worried. This is a gentle reassuring tale with illustrations that are gorgeous.

Read about the book and the activity we did here [ can be done with other Owl books with some variation!

Owl Moon by Jane Yolen

Owl Books

Owl Moon is a book to cherish. The story of a little child who is finally old enough to go “owling” with her father on a cold, clear, moonlit night. The illustrations are beautiful and make you feel like you are, indeed, walking through the quiet woods at night. I absolutely recommend this award winning masterpiece by Jane Yolen to all Moms!!

It is just heartwarming and will remind you of all the things your tot would one day be old enough to do <3

Wow! Said the Owl by Tim Hopgood

We all know Owls are nocturnal, but in this story one curious little owl decides to stay awake all day, instead of all night, and discovers a world bursting with colour! Yet when the night-time comes around again, the stars above her head are still the most beautiful of all. 

WOW! Said the Owl is an engaging book about colours from Tim Hopgood. Perfect for kids under 3 years old!

The Owl who was afraid of the Dark by Jill Tomlinson

Owl Books

Plop, the Baby Barn Owl, is like every Barn Owl is afraid of the dark, so he won’t go hunting with his parents. Mrs Barn Owl sends him down from his nest-hole to ask about the dark and he meets a flurry of interesting people who tell him that dark is not all that bad after all. Filled with gentle humour and comfort, this is a beautiful book to read to kids who are afraid of the dark!

The Little White Owl by Tracy Corderoy

Owl Books

There was a little white owl who lived by himself in the snow. He did not have a name But he didn’t really mind too much – and his head was full of happy stories. Then one day the little owl sets off to see the world. When he meets some beautiful, colourful owls he can’t wait to share his stories, but these pretty owls do not want to be friends with a plain little owl like him. How does the little white owl change their minds? Beautifully illustrated in vivid colours by the best-selling illustrator Jane Chapman [ description]

Owl’s Winter Rescue by Anita Loughrey

Owl Books

This book depicts a beautiful winter wonderland. The woods are beautiful in winter – there’s a blanket of snow on the ground and icicles glitter on the trees like diamonds [ from overview]. But Rabbit’s curiosity leads him into trouble. Can Owl rescue and save him?

Lazy Ozzie by Michael Coleman

Owl Books

This is one of my favorite books. It seems like another sweet little book but it is packed with so much more than that.The kids see the “ lazy” behaviour of Ozzie and understand what it really means then the important lesson of what is an emergency (and what is NOT an emergency).

Little Ozzie’s mother asks her to learn to fly but Lazy Ozzie tricks the Farm Animals in to helping her. In the process, we learn about difference in farm animal sizes, animal habitat (sty, pasture, duck pond), rhyming (big pig), alliteration (short sheepdog, dinky duck!), peer relations, and honesty. An extra plus for lap-reading– mother owl is hiding on every page to watch what Ozzie is doing. It’s fun to find her!
