Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K–When Baby Owl asks, "WHOOOO… is that baby sleeping in the nest below?" his mother gives more of a theological explanation than is normally included in a Nativity story for young children. Mama Owl tells the curious youngster that this Holy Child has a Heavenly Father as well as an earthly father. She also tells him that "God, his Heavenly Father, has given him the warmth of his love instead of feathers." The mixed-media illustrations are sweet and appealing. However, while Baby Owl is satisfied with the details provided about this Child, human parents may find that this story raises more questions than it answers with their youngsters.–V. W.

Format: Hardcover
I teach preschool and sunday school this book with its darling and captivating pictures was a hit in our classes. The children could relate to the baby owl and the many questions. It was a delightful read over and over again.
