Book of the Week, Little Owl Lost
Little Owl Lost by Chris Haughton is such an adorable book. The story is simple and though it has been told before, it is a refreshing take on the tale of being lost and found. This book reminded me of a little of Are you My Mother? by P.D. Eastman, aka Dr. Seuss. It follows this little owl who falls out of his tree and needs help finding his mother. He befriends a funny, yet slightly over eager squirrel who aids him in helping find his moma. After several failed, yet humours attempts, it is a frog who comes to the rescue. This book is also visually stunning as it harks back on a 1960's retro, minimalistic feel. Both parents and kids are sure to enjoy this lovely tale.
