Owl Babies

Some board books take longer to outgrow than others.  We love Owl Babies.  

And you can watch it, too!  Here's a sweet little Owl Babies break for you today.

(By the way, my husband has been informed that he "doesn't read it right."  It's my job.  I do the cuter Bill voice.)

Owl Babies by Martin Waddell,
illustrated by Patrick Benson.
Candlewick Press, 1992 (USA).


  1. LOVE THIS BOOK SO MUCH. This one is a keeper-forever. No one should leave childhood without reading this one! So excited to show my kiddo the video!

    1. It's very sweet. Walker Books U.K. has quite a few wonderful animated shorts of picture books. Poke around YouTube, and you can also find We're Going on a Bear Hunt, among others.

  2. No doubt... this is a book that all my kids still enjoy! just one of the very best!!!

    1. I read it for a winter storytime once, and we made mason jar owl snowglobes. I only had 4 or 5 kids that day, so it was pretty manageable. The girls still have theirs, although the googly eyes and construction paper beaks and wings are in varying states of falling off.


Comments are welcome! I'm a shy blog commenter, too, but I do love to read what people have to say. All I ask is, please be kind, to me and to each other.
