A sweet story of a girl and her dad searching for owls in the night. A great read to have in primary classrooms that inspires students too adventure. ( )
I have two copies of this book.
This book would be best for younger aged students. It is about a father and a daughter who travel into a snow storm and find an owl. This would be good in the classroom because it shows a positive parent and child relationship and shows adventure.
Could use this in the classroom by showing that not all lessons you have to teach out loud, but if you're silent and have hope you get to possibly see the things you want to see by being patient. A cute story between a girl and her father going owling, and her dad teaches her to be silent to be able to find an owl. Great for ages kindergarten-2nd.
Quiet and magical!

The author of Owl Moon is one of the rarer breed of writers who take seriously the demanding task of creating texts for picture books without pandering. Although the story of going into a snow-blanketed forest with a full moon illuminating the darkness in search of an owl is told by a sixish-year-old girl, much of the syntax and vocabulary is adult. It's as if a woman were telling us (using the present tense) of a fondly remembered high point of her childhood. The parent-child bonding shines clearly between the lines as the pair trudge silently, attending to the woodsy stillness and listening for the "whoooo" that signals success. Simple but convincing, the warmth of the experience is kindled by the sensitively chosen words. Schoenherr's transparent watercolors take advantage of the white paper by evoking images of moonlight-splashed fields and luminescent patches of night sky. Father and daughter are honestly painted figures animated by strategically drawn black lines. Barest backgrounds are like stage flats, suggestions of pine trees. The text is set in short-lined vertical blocks in white spaces left barren for the purpose on the double-page spreads. Overall, the visual setting is competent, although the use of a heavily glazed paper destroys much of the subtlety of the watercolor medium. But the realism of the paintings fails to take proper advantage of the emotional content of the words. 1987, Philomel, $13.95. Ages 4 to 8.
