What could be causing that terrible howling in the forest? In Owl Howl by Paul Friester and Philippe Goossens, we find a baby owl crying and crying in the middle of the forest. All of her neighbors take turns trying to help. They try to comfort the baby owl with yummy nuts and a necklace made of flowers. She just shakes her head “No” and continues to cry and cry and cry. A little tough love is tried, but that makes her cry even harder! Finally, after a gentle hammock rocking, the little owl flies back up to her mother’s lap. When Mommy Owl asks what’s wrong, all of her animal friends stop everything to listen. The little owl stops crying, sniffs a bit, and quietly cheeps, “I forgot.” Little ones and parents alike are sure to catch glimpses of reality with this delightful story.
