"If you go owling you have to be quiet."

by Jane Yolen

My mother lived on nine acres and one morning as I walked down her long driveway a huge owl flew out of one of her trees and glided right over my head. He was so close I could feel the wind he created.  The moments in life when we connect with nature are breathtaking. I will never forget it.  The Caldecott award winning book  OWL MOON  reminds me of that experience. Click on the link ...
