Have you ever seen an owl in the woods? I saw one on a cold winter day, and I’ll never forget it.

Would you like to learn how to go owling?

This Caldecott medal award-winning book is a poetic and peaceful read.

Owl Moon will take you on a journey with a young girl and her father, as they go owling one moonlit night. You’ll experience the companionship of the two as they walk in silence, waiting patiently to see an owl. You may even feel like you’re in the snowy woods, needing to warm your hands and cheeks. The illustrations are beautifully realistic and made me feel like I was in the quiet of the snow looking for an owl.

A perfect winter holiday read, this vintage book will captivate your child’s attention and leave you both feeling calm, centered and connected to the natural world.

Helps with: mindfulness, being in the moment, time in nature, exploring the natural world, doing an owl walk, listening, meditation, being in solitude, learning to observe, appreciating winter.
