Synopsis: Mama Owl goes out hunting for the night, and the three owl babies get progressively more worried and scared. When they have almost sunk into despair, mom comes home.

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  Make owl masks, and use thin paper strips curled with scissors for the feathers. Re-enact the story!
•  Draw a picture of you and your mom and dad, celebrating Halloween.

*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions. You can use them, but you don’t have to use them. You can expand upon them, or add your own twist. Remember, though, that the focus of your time should not be on the development and execution of a craft; the focus should be on the read-aloud and the enjoyment of the book!
