Review By JENNIFER GANNETT
Little Owl Lost is a sweet book about the tale of an baby owlet lost in the forest. With the help of other forest creatures, he is eventually reunited with his mom. The book’s uniquely colored and stylized illustrations and font are striking and visually pleasing.
Little Owl Lost borrows on the theme found in the classic book Are You My Mother? but we have fun moving through the forest with Little Owl and his friend Squirrel as they search for – and find – Mama Owl by a process of elimination. The themes of helping others who may be scared or vulnerable and the importance of community are well illustrated for young ones.
Recommended for toddlers and up (though note that this is not currently available as a board book).
