My Rating: 3/5 stars
When a little owl has difficulty flying, he needs an extra boost of confidence to try again. It takes the loving care of a little girl to help him overcome his awkwardness and take to the skies. A sweet and funny story for bedtime or anytime.
This is a cute and colorful picture book with a beautiful message. 😀
Other owls can swoop and soar but our little guy is yet to learn how to use his wings properly. He flies backwards, to the sides, and bumps into trees. He is slowly discouraged. A little girl who observes him takes him home, her mom doesn’t approve of it, so she builds him a home, feeds him, gives him clean water to drink, and most importantly gives him love. She worries about him and wonders why he can’t fly like other owls.
It was a fun little book that has a very important message that kids should learn. ❤ 😀
Why would I pick it up?
For the cute pictures and the moral! ❤ 😀
