Comments for Whoo-oo Is It?
Whoo-Oo Is It? by Megan McDonald is the story of a nesting pair of barn owls who are nervously waiting their brood to soon hatch. One night while the father owl is still out hunting, the mother owl hears an unexpected noise. Fearing her eggs might be in danger from an approaching predator she flies off in search of the noise.
Her search takes her throughout the farm and surrounding forest, introducing children to the typical night time sounds and animals in rural areas. There are farm animals, cats, mice, dogs and many other animals, all beautifully illustrated.
Fortunately for the barn owl family all is well with the nest. The book ends with the start of their family, giving children a chance to learn about owlets too.
We read this book for Sean's on-going fascination with owls.
