White Owl, Barn Owl is a story of a young girl and her grandfather putting up a nesting box for a barn own and observing the owl in the evenings. “How do you know a barn owl lives here?” the girl asks before the owl is seen, and grandfather explains about owl pellets. This story is full of nonfiction information about how to observe owls and all about barn owls.
The book would make a great gift for birders and adults, but is written in a child friendly way in story format for children to enjoy.
