We made our owl after the directions found at Enchanted Learning, but we made some changes. We used small paper plates instead of regular sized plates. We also added lots of texture to ours. Here are more specifics:
starlings chittering, and the jays creaming. Every time there seemed to be some
peace and quite, someone else landed in the hollow tree and woke Owl up again.
You’ll have to read the book to find out if Owl ever gets some rest. This is a great read aloud story and my boys loved repeating all the animal sounds with me as I read throughout the book.
One stormy night, a lost and lonely owl walks into a farmyard looking for a
place to sleep. After a restful night in the henhouse, Owl wakes to discover
that the hens want him to leave. They’re looking for a rooster, not an
owl! Will Owl be able to convince his new friends that he should stay? Another cute and funny story!
