"I want my mommy!" Three baby owls awake one night to find their mother gone, and they can't help but wonder where she is. What is she doing? When will she be back? What scary things move all around them? Stunning illustrations from striking perspectives capture the anxious little owls as they worry. Not surprisingly, joyous flapping and dancing and bouncing greet the mother's return, lending a celebratory tone to the ending of this comforting tale. Never has the plight of young ones who miss their mother been so simply told or so beautifully rendered.
A cute board book... great art work with enough visual contrast (white owlets on dark background)to attract the attention of younger babies. Older babies/younger toddlers will likely appreciate the simple story line and brief emotional conflict of the "missing" mother owl, and the happy reassurance of her return to her little ones.
