Oliver is a barn owl and he is growing up. The day he learns to fly is a great day and his new skill gives him the ability to observe the world. For instance, he watches the deer in the forest. He watches the children around the barn. He's wary of the banging machine that's used to scare the birds away from the crops. But most of all, he learns how things can help each other. When he discovers two old scarecrows in the barn, he discovers how great it can be to make other people's lives better.
I was kindly sent this book by Austin Macauley Publishers in exchange of an honest review.
I attempted to read this story to my 2 year old daughter but unfortunately due to there being a lot of text and very few pictures she lost interest very quickly. I would suggest that older children read this book.
The story starts by introducing an Owl, who helps and befriends a deer, then it jumped to being all about a family who live on a farm and a barn with two abandoned scarecrows.
It's a good story that any child who likes to be read to will enjoy. When my daughter is older I will try it again and give my review an update.
