    This book would be great for students to learn about nature. You could bring up the aspect of being silent to students who struggle in that area.

    I read this in my literacy block class and absolutely loved the book. I will definitely buy this book for my future class. This is a great book with an extreme amount of thought. excellent example of a descriptive word book as it was an example in my class. Great book to lead into an activity with your students.

    Owl Moon is a wonderful story about a girl's adventure with her father. The images are beautiful and help to show the mood and tone of the story. Great story for young readers since they can visualize themselves as travelers in a dark and snowy night.

    Caldecott Medal Winner - In this wonderful tale, a little girl gets to stay up past her bedtime & go owling with her father. She experiences many different sights and sounds as we experience this whimsical event with her! A lovely tale with great illustrations. Another bedtime must!

    A young girl and her father set out for the woods one snowy night, in this lovely, contemplative picture-book, the Caldecott Medal winner for 1988. Aware that she must be very quiet, the girl narrator struggles to keep up with her father, and - when they enter the darkness of the woods themselves - to be brave. Both are necessary, she informs the reader, when one is going owling, something she has been waiting a very long time to be allowed to do. Finally, in a moonlit clearing, with snow whiter than milk, the pair see what they have come for - a Great Horned Owl. After a moment (or one hundred) of magical connection, the owl flies on, and the tired pair head home...Owl Moon is yet another of those classic picture-books that have long been "on my radar," but that I'd somehow never read, so I'm glad it was chosen as one of our "Winter Themed" selections, over in the Picture-Book Club to which I belong. I loved so many things about the book, from Jane Yolen's simple but evocative text, to John Schoenherr's beautiful watercolor artwork. The idea that sometimes the best and most magical experiences in life require effort and discipline, is worked seamlessly into the story, as is the notion that long awaited "treats" are especially delightful. The enchantment of the winter landscape is perfectly captured by both word and image here, and I particularly appreciated the fact that, even before they have seen the owl, the girl and her father are not alone, as a variety of woodland creatures observe their journey. The two-page spread in which the owl is depicted is simply breathtaking, allowing the reader to feel, with the two in the story, that sense of joyous culmination.All in all, a delightful winter picture-book, one I highly recommend to all young nature and owl lovers, and to anyone who loves the cold enchantment of this season!

    Summary: A boy amd his father go "owling". It is something that is treasured by the boy, he said he had been waiting a long long time to go owling with Pa. He explains that it was long after his bedtime when they went out one night. They trudged along in the snow and his father would call out to the owls in hopes of one returning the call. There are certain unsaid rules of owling that the little boy talks about. You must be quiet and never call out when you go owling. Toward the end of the book, his father calls out and his call is returned with an owl calling out in the night. The boy and his father see an owl perched on a branch. They share a moment with the owl and then go back home. Personal Reaction: Being a family person that I am, I loved this story. I am a daddy's girl and don't have any brothers so me and my sisters got all of our daddy's time. This book is a great family book and would be great for children who maybe have not been able to grow up with something like this. Or in the opposite way, it would be great for kids who did have family time like this, a way to connect with the book.Classroom Extension: 1. This book talks about hope. This would be a great book to teach hope, you just call out and have hope that you will get a call back. 2. This book is also great if going over families or family values; things like that are excellently portrayed in this book also.

    I thought this book was really good, especially to read to small children. The words are real easy for the little ones to understand and the pictures are clam and peaceful. I thought that the illustrations had a wonderful connection with the story.

    I really enjoyed reading this book. Owl moon is about a father that takes his daughter "owling". The figurative language used in the book is evocative. When I read the lines "I could feel the cold, as if someone's icy hand was palm down on my back" I can almost feel a chill go down my spine. The story could be used to teach students about figurative language. After reading the book students could model the story and come up with a story using different kinds of figurative language featured in the book such as simile's and metaphors.

    Summary:This book is about a little boy and his pa who go owling. His pa told him the rules. He told him he needs to be quiet. They finally reached a line of pine trees and then pa made an owl call, which was the sound of a Great Horned Owl. He attempted several calls but it was silent. They walked on until they came to a cleaning in the dark woods and pa made another call. In return he heard an answer. The owl began to come closer. The owl then flew over them and they watched. The owl then hooted again. The owl then landed on the branch and they stood their staring. Pa and the little boy then headed for home.Personal:I thought this book was great. I like reading stories of families doing things as a family. I loved looking at the pictures they were very pretty and colorful. Extension:1. I would talk about owl calls.2. I could talk about how important it is for families to do things together.

    A father and his young girl travel across a snow embankment searching for a white owl. This story and "Me with you" are great examples of a positive male role model. He bundles his daughter up, walks with her, engages her in a passion of his, and shows his love for her. This book gives all those dad's who are excellent father's the credit they need. In the classroom this book would be great for introducing nocturnal creatures. Especially with the title "Owl Moon".

    I really liked the illustrations in this book. I think they may be some of my favorite children's book drawings. I also enjoyed how descriptive the language and writing was. It was simple and not very many things happen, yet the book had so much descriptive imagery to fill the pages.

    Children love to make different animal noises and this book can bring them together and let them make their own owl noises. The young child and his Pa go out to "owl hunt" and try to call the owls by "whooooing." The think by mimicking the owls noises they can attract the owl to come and see one. Illustrations are dark and make you feel like you are out on a dark night trying to find owls.

    A book about a daughter and her father bonding during winter by going owling. A great book to use when teaching the five senses.

    A young girl takes and evening walk with her father looking for an owl. Jane Yolen's beautiful use of poetic language and sensory imaging makes this an excellent book to use in reading or writing workshops. Though I don't have the recorded retelling, I have heard it and plan to add it to my wish list. This would make a wonderful paired teaching with a non-fiction for studying owls.

    Late one winter night, a little girl and her father go owling. The little girl is very quiet as her father calls out to the owls: "Whoo-who-who-whoo." But the owl doesn't answer. They continue to walk quietly because when you go owling you don't need words, just hope. Her father calls out to the owls again, "Whoo-who-whoo-whoo." And this time the owl answers back! Sometimes there isn't an owl, and sometimes there is.The illustrations are beautiful! I read this book to my children and they were so quiet. As is they were owling, listening for an owl to answer back.Great story for teaching kids to be still and listen. Have the kids listen for an animal sound, and then guess what animal makes that sound.

    Owl Moon is the interesting and captivating story of a young girl's fist owl hunt with her father. The book utilizes the use of our five senses to enhance the level of understanding. The illustrations are beautiful, and allow the reader to really get into the shoes of the young girl.

    A father takes his daughter out in the snow on a cold wintry night to go look for owls. The little girl is very excited and knows she must be quiet, have hope, and be brave. She follows her father into the woods listening very carefully for an owl and her and her father share an awesome discovery. This was a very interesting story about a father and a daughter relationship. I read this book to my 4-year-old son and he was bored with it. However, this was a very good story and I will keep in mind to read it to older children. In the classroom, while reading the book there are a few parts where you have to hoot like an owl, so I would have the children make the owl noises. Also, I could have the children tell me about the fun things they have done with their father or other family member.

    Owl Moon is the endearing tale of a father passing on a tradition to his child; going looking for owls in the forest at night time. You can read the story and just the words alone provide a picture you can imagine. The illustrations are beautiful and encourage the young reader to look at them in detail.

    This is a story of a child and father searching through the forest in the cold for an owl. The father calls to the owl and one answers back. Then the owl flies to a tree just above their heads and they stare at the owl until it flies off. The child knows it's okay to talk and make noise on the way home, but not while they are looking for the owl.This could be used as an entertaining story for children to use to discuss what they do with their father for fun.

    With the mystical setting of the woods where the snow is "whiter than the milk in a cereal bowl" and a father and daughter sharing a very special time together, this beautiful book by Jane Yolen and John Schoenherr is a must read.

    A very descriptive story about a young girl and her father's hiking trip through the snowy woods.
  • (3/5)
    This is a story about a girl and her Pa who go owling. As they trace through the snow, Pa hoots for owls. When they finally get an answer and see one, Pa shines his light on it and they stare silently. When the owl flies away, They go home and she can finally talk about they excitement.This story reminded me of nature trips I took as a child. How quiet one has to be while looking. The adventure in this book is slow to me. It takes a while to build and when it hits the climax, the story is over. After reading this to a class, I would take them on a nature walk. After we get back, tell them to write about what they saw.
