This week's library choice is Owl Babies. A heartwarming story of three owls, waiting for their mommy.
Owl Babies is a 1992 book by Martin Waddell and illustrated by Patrick Benson. It is about three owlets that wake up one night to find their mother gone, worry about her absence, but are then elated when she inevitably returns from her night flight.
This book is teaching our kids that no matter what, our mommy is always there for us and we do not have to worry... Three siblings are discussing where their mother might be. They are trying to soothe each other about their mother, while they are all worried. But their mother comes back flying and they all understand that there is no need to worry, that their mommy is always there for them, and will always come back.
Here is the story with the original illustration from the book, animated so nicely.
