Book of the Day






  This read aloud is a perfect bedtime
story for any child.  The beautiful water color
illustrations depict Jan Yolen's poetic story
of
a young one and father, out in the woods.
 
 "When you go owling you don't need words. 
You don't need anything but hope. 
Sometimes there isn't an owl, 
but sometimes there is."
