I bought it because I remember a teacher reading it to my class in my first year of school and remember loving the story and wanted to share it with my son. I wasn't traumatised by the Owl Mother's disappearance or even Percy's concern at one point in the story that a fox 'got' their Owl Mother which other reviewers have mentioned, but liked the happy ending.
My son is only 4 months old, but I wanted to get into the routine of bedtime reading early, and he seems to listen and looks at the pictures. It's one that we'll keep and continue to read in the coming years as he gets older.
The illustrations are lovely and it's a nice story for 'doing voices' when reading aloud to children - the baby owls Sarah, Percy and Bill all comment in turn on each page and it's nice to do a different voice for each of the baby owls. I also like the repetition of Bill's 'I want my Mummy' throughout the story, which becomes 'I love my Mummy' at the end when the Owl Mother returns to the baby owls. It makes the story memorable for children, and older children might enjoy joining in and reading Bill's line.
A lovely bedtime story for young children.
Its a great book, isnt too long so little ones don't loose interest, and us parents don't mind reading it 15 times in a row ;) Lovely story to make you smile :)
It's a very simple story as suits small children of say 1 to 2.5 yo. My dad thinks it's boring, but he would.
So good I tend to give it as presents to new mums.
