Comments for Tiger with Wings
I know I've mentioned many times Sean's fascination with owls. Whenever I can find a children's book about owls I get it. One of the more educational books Sean has in his owl library is Tiger with Wings. The story follows a mother owl over the course of a year as she hunts, finds a mate, and cares for her young. The illustrations by Mary Barrett Brown really capture the owl in all its beauty and power.
Even though it's a children's book I've learned a few things about the Great Horned owl. For instance, I had no idea that the owl is large enough and strong enough to hunt skunks and cats. This species of owl is at the top of the food chain, up there with mountain lions and other large predators.
Here is my BookCrossing Review:
Ian and I took Harriet to vote yesterday. It's been a while since I've had to vote with a baby in a sling. I think she was one of the highlights of the day for the poll workers. She fussed at first but then fell asleep; it was a long ballot, two pages front and back.
For the candidates I voted a straight party line, even though I really don't like Jerry Brown. I knew that things looked good for a democratic take over of the house but the landslide amount was stunning and rewarding. Having Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House and Rumsfeld resigning, I feel like it's my birthday. I haven't felt this good about an election since I was in college.
