    The story of a great horned owl family is told in dramatic fashion using only haiku poems in this picture book A pair of great horned owls find a squirrel s nest and claim it as their home The mother bird lays three eggs in the nest, losing one when the crows attack her Now there are two eggs left to guard and keep warm Soon two owlets emerge from their eggs, eating the prey that Mama and Papa bring to them The woods has lots of dangers like hunting hawks and foxes waiting for an owlet to f The story of a great horned owl family is told in dramatic fashion using only haiku poems in this picture book A pair of great horned owls find a squirrel s nest and claim it as their home The mother bird lays three eggs in the nest, losing one when the crows attack her Now there are two eggs left to guard and keep warm Soon two owlets emerge from their eggs, eating the prey that Mama and Papa bring to them The woods has lots of dangers like hunting hawks and foxes waiting for an owlet to fall Mama is there to protect them though, until it is time for them to take wing and find a home of their own.Through her series of haiku poems, Gianferrari creates moments that build on one another into a full story of the first months of egg laying and owlets growing up Focusing on the strength and power of the most commons owls in North America, along with their exceptional parenting skills, the book also reveals the dangers they face despite their size.Voss illustrations are a gorgeous match to the beauty of the poetry Illustrated in sepia ink and watercolor, with digital color added, these illustrations captures the various moments with skill and drama The quiet moments are just as powerful as the action ones, filled with dappled forest light and the incredible creatures.A marvelous book of nature poetry for children Appropriate for ages 6 9

    Haiku is the perfect form to share the tale of young owlets and their growth from eggs in a nest to the day they fly off to make their own homes The brevity of the lines catches the quick pace of life within the forest The attack of crows The Pip Pip Pip Poking as eggs crack open Beating, leaping, teetering as the young ones try out their wings Bit by bit readers can see the perils of life in the forest, the protection of the owl parents, and the freedom of wings.The sepia and water Haiku is the perfect form to share the tale of young owlets and their growth from eggs in a nest to the day they fly off to make their own homes The brevity of the lines catches the quick pace of life within the forest The attack of crows The Pip Pip Pip Poking as eggs crack open Beating, leaping, teetering as the young ones try out their wings Bit by bit readers can see the perils of life in the forest, the protection of the owl parents, and the freedom of wings.The sepia and watercolor illustrations capture the dazzle of sunbeams filtering through the leaves and the brilliance of a full moon on the treetops Images also show closeups of the hatchlings sheltered under the mother s wings and the panicked flight of a fledgling from a hungry fox Back matter includes details about the senses, feeding habits, and range of the great horned owl There are also suggested books, websites, and videos for additional information Whether is is read due to interest in the owls, or as a mentor text for poetry lessons this is an excellent book for elementary school classrooms and libraries

    As a long time owl connoisseur, this book has me whoo ly impressed Told entirely in Haiku, this is a story of a Great Horned Owl family, from the finding of a nest to the growth and maturity of two owlets The illustrations are completely stunning and accurate to the detail I would gladly hang any and all of them on my wall, if I could The essence of the elusive, crepuscular Great Horned Owl is captured beautifully and vividly in this lovely book of poetry.

  9. Gabrielle Stoller says:

    Haikus are my favorite form of poetry Probably because it makes the most sense to me Five syllables, seven syllables, five syllables It s straight forward So the story of a great horned owl family from finding a nest, to eggs hatching, to predators, to moving on this book has it all It s truly a beautifully illustrated non fiction picture book And due to the haiku, you can t help but feel classy

  10. Lynn says:
