Fall is a fantastic time to explore, not only are the leaves beautiful, but there is so much going on to enjoy. Owl Sees Owl by Laura Godwin and Rob Dundavey is an adorable short, but sweet book that will get you thinking about Fall and Owls.
Owl Sees Owl is perfect for preschoolers with only four words per page. This cute story follows a baby owl as he leaves his nest and family and explores the world around him. Halfway through the book the baby owl is startled and the story reverses until he is safely back home in his nest.
