Owl Moon is a very young children’s story about a girl and her father who take a night walk. During the walk they experience many sights and sounds, and also encounter snow and owls.
This book won the Caldecott Medal for illustration and was featured on the TV show Reading Rainbow.
This book is what I label as a very traditional children’s story. The story reads more like poetry, and there is little plot other than what relates to what happens in the text. I personally do not like this kind of story, although it is well-written and age appropriate. I would rather read my child something with more depth and plot, or something more educational. But that is just me.
This book is appropriate for children of all ages.
