This story will strike a familiar chord in every small child who has been afraid when left by [a] parent, and parents will perhaps gain a new understanding of how a small child might feel . . . A wonderful 'read to me' book for nap time, story time, or bedtime.

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

Enchanting...illustrations of the softly colored baby owls set against a black night will captivate preschool listeners.

My son loved this book at 2years and it’s still a favorite at 3 years. It’s about three owl babies and their mother—who always comes back.
