Owl moon is a calming, centered book about a young boy who goes owling with his father. Throughout his owling adventure, the boy learns patience and grace while watching his father model these actions.

Great book for the classroom after recess or when students need to settle down.

This story is one of an adventure taken by a father and daughter taken on a winter night. They go out in a snowy dark meadow to find an owl. The author paints a picture with the use of figurative language to build anticipation until finally, the daughter is able to see her father communicate with a great horned owl and she is able to see it up close.

This is a calming realistic fiction story about a boy and his Pa going owling together. There is a lot of figurative language in the story specifically metaphors and similies that could go along with a lesson. I would read this novel to a third-grade classroom as I think the students would be very interested in it and could understand the figurative language. I would definitely recommend reading this story in your class!

Owl Moon is placed in a dark, snowy night where a father and a daughter search for an owl. Owl Moon is a classic, with great illustrations, and a lot of descriptive/figurative language. Can be used in a lot of different classroom settings/lessons/grades.

Owl Moon by Jane Yolen is a Caldecott Award winning book. The book follows a father and his daughter as they venture into the woods on a calm, snowy night to find an owl. The story does an excellent job building up to the climax where the little girl has her first encounter with a great horned owl!

Overall, an okay read. I personally didn't take much interest into the book just from just picking off the shelf to read. But I sense that it probably has a great story or history to it and if I knew that it would probably be more interesting.

A story about a father who takes his young child to look for and seek out owls in the night during winter. They go on an adventure to find owls that night and they came across a great horned owl that called back to them. The point of this story is to teach you the importance of bravery and self-control. How going on an adventure might take time to find what you are looking for but you will eventually get there.

This book is about a young girl and her father as they head out on their journey owling. They need to stay very quiet in order to get the owls to come out. The father and daughter are very persistent as they send their owl calls and do not get a response.... until they do. They end up moving to different areas of the snowy woods and continue to call out to the owl until it finally comes out.They walk home together proud of their patience and hope.

clairebourq_2023 I really liked how this story showed the hope and persistence of the father and daughter and how they never gave up. I loved the quietness and calmness that this book made me feel. I would encourage people to read this book to their children and encourage educators to have this book in their class!

Owl Moon tells us about a girl and her father who go owling in the late nights of winter. The books lesson is bravery and goal setting. I would rate this book a 3/5. I liked the plot but feel as if the illustration was very dark and gloomy and it was wordy (you may lose some childrens attention).

Owl Moon is about a little girl and her father, who go owling together on a moonlight winter night. They decided to take a stroll through the woods and the daughter discovers many things about how a winter night feels, how much is said in silence. At the end of the story, the father and daughter meet up with the owl they were in search of. The owl stares at the father and daughter.

olivia_danko This realistic fiction and award-winning Caldecott book would best be taught using UDL 8.1 (Heighten salience of goals and objectives) The main objectives of this story are children will explore relationships, investigate the use of each of their five senses, and learn about nocturnal animals.
3y
olivia_danko The ELS strategy I'd use is EL 3 (encourage self-talk, positive thinking) because students participate and share their positive relationship with their father or caretaker!

emilypalkovich This story sounds really heart-warming since it is centered around a father and daughter that seem to be close. Since it is a Caldecott award winner I‘m sure the story uses great language and teaches a nice lesson. Great post! (edited) 3y
DrSpalding So, side story… We have owls in our conservation area in our neighborhood. My niece that is now 10, loves to go and I quote “owning” when she spends the night. We go into that area and she calls the owls and often times they will reply! Such a cool text to world/self connection for her. Sometimes this book is considered historical fiction. It is based on the authors experience with her father which did occur well before the 1980s. 3y

This months @owlcrate was all about The Gilded One. I actually already purchased this book in my yearly preorders. I gave my nephew the other copy and wished I hadn‘t. I like the original cover better.

Overall the box is successful. I love the book tin, and the hairbrush is unique. I like the keychain and the pin was underwhelming. Overall I give this box a B+.

I am really impressed with this months crate. It‘s a lot black so it‘s hard to see. But there is a new pin banner (yeah my last one is almost full). The monthly pin. Some loose leaf tea. A wooden bookmark. There is a fabric 2021 moon calendar that is beautiful. Plus a letter board. And it‘s a very nice letter boas. I already have a cheep one but this blows mine away. Plus I was. Right on the title. It‘s Lore. The cover is black instead of white.

LibrarianRyan The pouch came with the letter board to keep the plethora of letters in. This is by and far the best crate they have done in a while. 3y

Just got my @owlcrate today and boy is it late. But that‘s okay. Our Post Office people have been working their butts off and are doing a great job.

I knew this month was going to be These Violet Delights. It sounds really interesting. The cover change is that it went from being black to deep green. It‘s almost unnoticeable.

The yearly ornament is nice. I really like the design.

I can‘t use the hand cream because of allergies. 👇🏻

LibrarianRyan I like the puzzle but the picture is really dark. I also really like that they did something different with the leg warmers but to be honest I was hoping for another hat. I love those things. Plus as us big girls know, one size fits all does not really fit all. Maybe I can use them as arm warmers? The last thing besides the pin was the rolling pin. It‘s for making decorative impressions on baked goods. I give the OC team snaps trying new things. 3y

Not super impressed with this months Owlcrate but I do like it. The blanket is Sumer soft and has the entire poem the Raven on it. It‘s not a very large blanket unless your a kid but it is the perfect size to put in my desk at work.

There are 3 skull spoons. I‘m allergic to the candle and there is some pumpkin spice lip balm. The book mark is really cool and is probably my favorite thing in the box. And this months pin is a hand holding a 🌹

LibrarianRyan The book is Horrid which I have been looking forward too. But I don‘t think the cover make over is successful. They made the black roses red and then did red hi-lighting on the title. I think the title hi-lighting would have been enough. Next months theme is legends and lore. Have not guessed the book yet. 4y
Traci1 I love the blanket. The bookmark is awesome, but my daughter grabbed that. My head scratcher with this one was the spoons. They look cool enough, but what exactly are they meant for? Can't eat with holey spoons. They're just...weird. My daughter loved the cover of the book. Me, not so much. I loved the interior of the cover, though. 4y
LibrarianRyan @Traci1 yes agree about the enterprise. In the papers it said they are coffee spoons. But agree a hokey spoon is hard to use. 4y

A winner of the Caldecott medal, written by both Jane Yolen and Ernest V Troost, this RF children‘s book will bring so much joy to your heart. Read along as we follow a daughter and father through their moonlight adventure to find owls and all of the little critters they see along the way. True bonding is found in nature. ❤️ #ucflae3414su20

ashleyshugars This cute story would best serve as in IR for students in 2nd-3rd grade. It has great vocabulary, but is not too advanced for this level. UDL strategy 7.3 will work while providing the right reading space, and ESOL strategy 29 with the right tools. Check out the resource for vocabulary below! https://quizlet.com/7479414/owl-moon-vocabulary-flash-cards/ 4y
bsiqueira This book sounds so adorable. I love to read and tell stories about family bonds. I like that you mentioned how the vocabulary is and that it is not too advanced! 4y
DrSpalding At this point this book is probably considered historical fiction. It could be a good independent read but it could also be part of your science curriculum when and if you teach students about owls. You have provided a bit more information about the universal design and English learner strategies but the verbiage is not present. 4y

This is the first time I have gotten my Owlcrate in its usually time frame in months. I almost missed this one because of a lost debit card. But the team at OC was great.

Didn‘t want to miss this one because it was time for the yearly HP mug. I‘m missing the Nightbus mug so I know if you don‘t get it the month it‘s out you don‘t get it.

I think I‘m going to make bookmarks out of the arrow paper lips. The pin is nice but they have done better

LibrarianRyan I also like that they are trying new things. Last month was pot holder which I loved and this month it‘s an apron. Not sure how I will use it. Maybe I‘ll keep it in the garage for when I work resin. The Star Wars bookmark is double sided and wood. We have received these bookmarks before and I love them all but this is by far the best. And the book. It had gold sprayed edges and they changed the cover color from pink to orange and I LOVE IT. ⬇️ 4y
LibrarianRyan I knew this was the book in the box and I had to keep reminding myself not to buy it. So very happy with this months box. Next month‘s box will have a book sleeve. The last sleeve wasn‘t bad it was just floppy. I really liked the first sleeve they ever sent but know there were issues with it. I forget the theme for next month so I don‘t have a guess on the book yet, but I will soon. 4y

“Owl Moon” is a (RF) book, it was written by Jane Yolen and illustrated by Jong Schoenherr. In 2017 Owl Moon won the Caldecott Award for its beautiful illustrations.Due to its popularity it is translated into many languages such as French, German, Chinese, and Korean.

dbears1 “Owl Moon” is about a father and his child exploring the night looking for owls.The story allows the readers and listeners to connect with the sights, the echoes, and the feeling of being outside on a cold winter's night. This is a great (RA) book, the beautiful watercolor illustrations will help students understand the characters and setting. It can also introduce the science topic of weather, as some children have not experienced snow before. 4y

I guessed the book correctly for this month. Might have to dive into it this #24in48 readathon. The cover is blue instead of black, it‘s signed and has silver sprayed pages.

It also had a mini speaker. That could come in handy this weekend. A candle I like the smell of (Berries and peaches), socks, book plates, a sodden sign and a Phantom of the opera art print not pictured because it‘s still curled up

I love this months @owlcrate. I guessed the book correctly but I thought there we be a bigger cover difference. It‘s green/purple instead of blue/grey.

I love a bento box. This one is a bit plain and simple but it‘s something new for them and I LOVE It!

The glass cloth is two sides so I don‘t know what I‘m going to do with it.

There are actually 2 bookmarks, one for me, one for a friend.

Plus the monthly pin and a keychain. ⬇️

LibrarianRyan The deck of cards is amazing. It‘s really well done. It‘s a nice heavy glossy card and the art is amazing. However it would be hard to play with as all the suits are the same color (white). It even has metallic edges. I love a great deck of cards 4y
LibrarianRyan My only complaint is all the plastic. (Not the bento box). But the little plastic bags that they put the book, the pen and the key chain in. They did a box a few months ago that used all paper packaging and I would love to see them go back to it. @4thhouseontheleft 4y

It had the next HP in the series, a LotR map banner, Crooked kingdom @outofprint socks to match last years Six of crows socks. The candle has a nice scent and the pill box is nice. And of course the enamel pin rounds things out.
