This is an adorable young children’s book about 3 baby owls. They wake up one night to find their mother missing. Each page you overhear the owls’ thoughts as they worry, come up with excuses, and reveal how much they miss their mommy! The artwork is fabulous. Great short story!
Speech Therapy Ideas:
1. Books with repetitive lines are great for kids working on language. “I want my mommy!” Is repeated multiple times throughout the book. Have your child repeat this sentence, or just point to them to indicate it is their turn to “read” the line. Also, this could be said with a one step voice output device, like a BigMack.
2. This book is good for younger children. It contains a lot of easy /m/ sounds. Good for very early sound development. Pucker your lips. Point to them. Over-emphasize the /mmmmmmmm/ to help your child produce them.
3. Vocabulary to work on for older children: ivy, noctural, miss, patient, branch
