Two baby owls live safely hidden in the trees while their parents bring them yummy bugs to munch on. Then the day comes when daddy owl decides that they need to learn how to fly, but the littlest owl is not so sure…

This book is a joy to read out loud. The simple story is accompanied by fantastic onomatopoeic words that children can learn and repeat, allowing them to take part in the story telling process. The illustrations perfectly match the tone of the story, with bright central images surrounded by block colour, making it accessible for very young readers. A sweet book for bedtime.
