Owl Moon - by Jane Yolen
1988 Caldecott Medal Winner
This is a beautifully illustrated and simple story of hope and trust as a young child goes "owling" with her father. Excellent story for dads to read aloud to young children.
"As expansive as the broad sweep of the great owl's wings and as close and comforting as a small hand held on a wintry night . . . The visual images have a sense of depth and seem to invite readers into this special nighttime world." School Library Journal, Starred Review
