My son has been interested in owls since he was 18 months old.

Really sweet book about a son's curiosity and his mother's gentle encouragement.

ends on a sweet note. Owly tells his mom “I love you as much as the sky is high and the ocean is deep.” This is a great story for young kids to read and think about the answers to Owly’s questions. I enjoyed reading this story as a kid and I still love it!
