Book Review Tuesday: The OWL Who Couldn't WHOO

“Join Ollie on his adventure in searching for his sister and learning the significance of being different.”

About the Book:
While providing insightful perspectives on diversity, The OWL Who Couldn’t WHOO offers educators, libraries, parents and young readers a fresh new look on anti-bullying and self-confidence.

My girls really enjoyed this book. My youngest loved saying all of Ollie’s special words (“WHEERE!” or “WHEEN!” or “WHYY!” and sometimes “WHAAT!” ) and it was a great exercise for my oldest who is in speech to practice some of the words she has difficultly with in a fun new way. The author LeeAnna Kail wrote the book as more of a fun story to show how to get along with others who are different, but my family found other valuable things as you can see written with in the pages. One reason why this writing mama feels picture books are important to have within your bookshelves. 

The story is simply told with just enough details within the illustrations and context to let young readers see beyond the words on the page. The most important thing is this is one story you won’t mind reading repeatedly as the live lessons are shared in such away it isn’t preachy  and just a fun read for all ages.
