Owl Babies is full of stunning illustrations capture the owls as they worry about their mother: What is she doing? When will she be back?

When three baby owls awake one night to find their mother gone, they can’t help but wonder where she is.

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.

This book is a perennial shop favorite!
