The Owl who coverThe Owl Who Couldn’t Whoo

This is a GREAT picture book with a wonderful message-being different isn’t such a bad thing because we all have unique gifts and talents to offer the world. All we have to do is to assert them and make them known to others instead of trying to be like everyone else.

Ollie the owl was known for only one thing in his village: he couldn’t Whoo like the other owls. The other owls teased her, laughed at her, and instructed her—but despite all of this, she just could not Whoo like the others. I guess you could say that she was unique in her own way. However, when her little sister went missing, she was able to find her and bring her back home. How wonderful is that!

There is a big lesson in this book for kids, one that kids should learn from the earliest age: always look for your uniqueness and have the courage to be who you truly are, regardless what everyone else thinks. Just because you are not exactly like the others, it doesn’t mean that you are not wonderful just as you are.

Thanks so much LeeAnna for such a wonderful and thought-provoking book.
