The Owl Who Dared

We rated this book:


As the sun fades into the horizon and darkness beckons, a little owl and his mommy wake from their slumber. She gently tells her kin, “It’s time to learn to fly.” Fear and trepidation threaten to steal the courage he needs to journey into the skies. He gathers all his strength and attempts to fly, only to plummet awkwardly to the hard, unforgiving ground. The mother owl encourages him to try and try again, assuring him that someday he will succeed. His discouragement fades as her words resonate, and he witnesses other brave creatures struggling to gain their independence as well.

This is a precious book with an uplifting and age-old message that with work and determination all things are possible. Gaining new skills and achieving mastery takes time and often many trials and failures. Children will find this relatable, even the really little ones, and parents will savor how sweetly this sentiment is conveyed. The Owl Who Dared makes for a perfect bedtime story, and will be a welcome addition to any preschool or early elementary school classroom. In addition to the narrative, youngsters will love the vibrantly hued illustrations that gloss the pages with allure.
