Here are some more great owl picture books I considered for storytime last week:
The Littlest Owl by Caroline Pitcher
The last owl to hatch is also the smallest…he’s a bit dumpy, to be honest. When the others learn to fly, he just can’t do it, but that doesn’t stop him from trying. He’s sure he’ll fly, just like his siblings…”Just you wait and see!” This is a really sweet book about perseverance.
The Little White Owl by Tracey Corderoy
The little white owl lives all alone with his teddy bear and his stories. One day he decides to go out and see the world. He finds lots of beautiful, rainbow-colored owls who snub him because he is so plain, but eventually, they come to see and appreciate his colorful heart through the stories he shares with them.
The Barn Owls by Tony Johnston
The owls have lived in the barn “for one hundred years at least”. This quiet story and the illustrations are just beautiful!
Owl Moon by Jane Yolen
Another beautifully illustrated, gentle story, this one about a girl and her father who go out one winter night hoping to see an owl. There is so much to love about this book!
Cock-a-doodle-hooooooo! by Mick Manning and Brita Granstrom
A lost owl takes shelter in a farmyard during a storm and awakens in the morning in a henhouse. The hens want a rooster and mock all of his best efforts to fit in – he really does try, but he’s still no rooster. In the end, it’s being himself that makes him a hero.
I hope you enjoy these books as much as I did!
