OWL MOON is my favorite book... but I have to admit that I am far from unbiased. I am the little girl in this book, my father is "Pa" and my mother is Jane Yolen, the author. I have always loved this story, even before it was a book, because it is the story of my childhood with my real life bird watching father. Now, as a mother, it is even more special since I read it to my 3 year old daughter Maddison Jane. Last month, Maddison went, for the first time, into our back yard with my Dad and called to the owls with him. Thank you Mommy for writing this book. Thank you Daddy for teaching me about birds and all of nature. And thank you both for sharing this story with all readers.

I was really taken with this book. It provides the child with content seldom seen - adventure, nature, mastery of fear, parental love and support and respect for the animal world and the environment. The illustrations, especially the opening view of the farm and the valley, are beautifully done. The writing is perfect for a parent to read to the child and isn't condescending in tone. I recommend it highly.

Jane Yoolen's descriptions and wonder far surpass those of the usual children's stories. She brings the excitment and magic of a child walking through the woods alone at night with dad and allows us to see how children can take something so simple and turn it into a night of quiet excitment and joy. I recomend this book to anyone who is a kid or wants to remember being a kid and the magic of it all.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 26 July 2004
Format: Hardcover
Let me clear up one mystery. The dust jacket of this book clearly indicates that this is a story about a girl and her father (Pa). The illustrations also clearly show a little girl. The story's appeal relates to this because the experience described is one that crosses nicely between what many think of as the feminine worlds of beauty and the moon and the masculine worlds of tracking animals and rambling around at night in the snow during winter. I do think that boys will like the story too. Owling would be a great adventure for any child.
The experience is a magical one. The daughter is going owling for the first time. This is a type of bird watching that must occur at night, because owls are nocturnal. You have to have a full moon (or close to one) so that you can see the owls. The silvery moonshine creates great contrasts of light patches on the snow against a backdrop of treed shadows.
To go owling, "you have to be brave." There are other requirements. "If you go owling, you have to be quiet . . . ." And you do need hope!
The book also evokes primitive sound. Her father calls out: "Whoo-whoo-who-who-who-whooooooo . . . ." to simulate the call of the Great Horned Owl. That's how you find an owl. You hope one will be attracted by the call.
Then, the magical moment occurs, and an owl comes. You are face to face. Can such a moment be forgotten? The owl leaves. The relief is palpable. She knows she can talk . . . or even laugh.
As you can see, the story is a wonderful metaphor for going out to find opportunities in the wide world and creates an optimistic expectation of the sort that will serve your child well. It is thrilling to read the story because the excitement and suspense are so strongly captured by the words and images.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book because I liked the idea of a chldren's story being about people rather than talking animals, etc. The story is very nice - a girl goes on a special night out with her father in nature. The illustrations are lovely. The writing of the story, however, is incredibly flowery, trite, and wordy. Both my husband and I find it way over the top to the point of being annoying to read.

Format: Hardcover
I have 3 children and have purchased and read literally hundreds of childrens books. This is one of my all time favorites. It will appeal to both the child and the adult reader as one seems able to relate to this story of a child with his father in the woods in many ways. The child-father relationship, appreciation and the mystery of nature, how simple things in life are what we remember and cherish,hope,love...its all there in this great little story. This book will invoke memories and emotions as you read it.

This beautiful children's book, about a young child, actually the daughter of the author, who goes on a night walk through the snow in the woods with her father to look for owls, was illustrated by John Schoenherr and it won the 1988 Caldecott Medal for best illustrations in a book for children. It is a gorgeous story and children will enjoy hearing it time and time again. They will also be more aware of the animal life that surrounds them.
