About this item

Description



Book Synopsis



"There aren't many 'baby books' that convey this kind of emotional richness supported by a perfect artistic form." -- Washington Post Book World

When three baby owls awake one night to find their mother gone, they can't help but wonder where she is. Stunning illustrations capture the owls as they worry about their mother: What is she doing? When will she be back? Not surprisingly, a joyous flapping and dancing and bouncing greets her 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.



Review Quotes



Benson's soft, wide-eyed birds--rendered in delicate pen strokes touched with gentle color that makes the dramatic, dark night seem appropriately awesome--are perfect stand-ins for wise little toddlers who also know Mom will turn up--but still can't help wondering.
--Kirkus Reviews

A wonderful 'read to me' book for nap time, story time, or bedtime.
--Booklist

A cute board book that would match well for your small children who miss Mommy for the 2 minutes she goes to the bathroom. Don't worry Owl babies she will come back.
