Owl Moon



Owl Moon by Jane Yolen is the Caldecott Medal winning story of a young girl and her father who go owling one winter’s night. The two walk along silently through the snow covered woods as the father calls out for owls. When one lands above them, the girl is awed by the magnificent creature. This soft, rhythmic story illustrates the special bond between a young girl and her father and explores the beauty of the natural world. This nighttime tale is wonderfully accompanied by the watercolor illustrations of artist John Schoenherr. Owl Moon is a book to be treasured and one that is sure to be asked for often at bedtime.
