Owl At Home by Arnold Lobel and Owl Crafts to Do After Reading

During the month of May, we are going to showcase some of our favorite read aloud books and then offer some craft ideas that correlate to the book.

Our first book is a favorite from when we were growing up, Owl At Home written and illustrated by Arnold Lobel.

Depending on the age you are reading to, Owl at Home might seem long for a read aloud at first but there are five different stories so you don’t have to read them all at once.  In this book you will learn that Winter is not a good house guest, things that make Owl cry so he can make “tear water tea”, and the Moon is a good friend.

There are a ton of owl crafts out there to do in conjunction with this book.  We have chosen a couple that do not require either a lot of time or materials and younger children can do most of the work.
