In Yolen's spare, graceful text, the child recounts their trudge through snow, long past bedtime, with Pa repeating an owl call until he is rewarded with a reply plus the sighting of the owl, for a minute or "maybe even a hundred minutes. Whoo-whoo-whoo, the father calls to the mysterious nighttime bird. But there is no answer. Wordlessly the two companions walk along, for when you go owling you don’t need words.

Owl Moon is a cherished book in our family. The story of a little child who is finally old enough to go "owling" with her pa on a cold, clear, moonlit night. As I read in very hushed tones, my young daughter would listen for her turn to call for the owls, "hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo." Each reading was like the first time as we wondered, "Will she hear an owl tonight?" The illustrations are beautiful and make you feel like you are, indeed, walking through the quiet woods at night. I purchase this book for most of the new babies in my circle of friends.
Jane Yolen is a genius. This book is truly a work of art. When I'm exhausted from reading all day long to my two-year-old, and can't bear the thought of reading one more, he entices me by handing over this one and saying "Mama's favorite."
This is an amazing book. I often read it to my daughter when she was 4 to 9. I bought this one for my 6 year old grandson. I now live in the woods and, as soon as the weather gets better, he and I will read the book and then go out searching for owls; I can't wait.

I buy a few of these at a time because they make wonderful gifts.
This is THE most BEATUIFUL book. This was one of our favorite children's books. I bought this one as a gift now 10 yrs after our kids have "flown the nest". Breathtaking artwork. A wonderful realistic story. AND I must tell you, as a family we started "calling owls" after reading this book and it works! It's quite amazing. Get a good copy and enjoy this book or buy as a lovely can't go wrong!
I have been a speech-language pathologist for more than 30 years. I work with children and have set out to have an ever growing collection of children's books. I collect books for all holidays, all seasons, specific themes or topics and for toddlers, preschoolers and school age children. I was searching for books about winter or snow and ran across Owl Moon which I hadn't heard of before. I love this classic and don't know why I hadn't found it before this. I recommend it for older preschoolers and right through school age children.
My son really loves it when I read him this book, while I read it to him, I say out loud the owl hoot sound, he just goes crazy over that! It keeps kids really into the book I'd say. This picture I took of the book doesn't do the book justice, it's just my lighting on this old smart phone. Bought this book for him for his birthday, and the book isn't too long of a read which i like too
Gorgeous pictures and eloquent and beautiful writing. This is truly a book that parents will enjoy reading over and over as much as the kids do. We've bought this book a number of times to give a gift. We started reading it to our kids at age 2 and they are still engaged three years later.
Owl Moon is a really wonderful and peaceful outdoorsy story. Perfect for bedtime. The art is beautiful. Each page it's own portrait. We wore out our copy reading to our kids at night. Especially nice if you have a daughter since its a story about her father and her going owling together one winter night. Presents a strong story and picture of the girl and a warm and protective picture of her father. 16 years later my daughter and I still use several of the memorable lines with each other. "Have to make your own heat" has come to have several special meaning about her being a strong, independent young women. A timeless and beautiful little book.
