After reading Owl Babies by Martin Waddell, Logan and I created this owl.
Owl Babies by Martin Waddell is a fabulously written and illustrated story. In the story, the mommy owl leaves for the night on a hunt and her babies wait up for her return. Logan kept telling the babies, "mommy gone." The text is very simple and clear. The text layout is wonderful. And the illustrations, besides being visually appealing, could stand alone to tell the story.
(This book and project were part of our Joyful Learning curriculum for the month of August. If you haven't checked out Hubbard's Cupboard, go there to find this project and so much more!)
On a side note to this project, after we made the owl and hung him so nicely on our door in the kitchen, I glanced over and saw this little feather sticking out.
Oh, and then, I turned around and saw this lying on the floor.
