Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book My 5 yr old daughter has a tough time focusing on stories in general but she seemed to really take to this series of stories. When I first got it I thought it would be boring for her, but she was quite engaged in the story. Very glad I bought this one and its not crammed with busy illustrations. Its nice to read a story where my child learns to listen and think about the story rather than follow the visuals and not really listen. The pictures (which are not on every page) are simple but really nice looking (almost Richard scary meets Beatrix potter). Perfect for a kindergartener who can help read the story since there is lots of simple vocabulary for that age.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from You Can't Help But Love Owl Reason for Reading: My son read this aloud to me. Comments: I'm very familiar with this book but had never actually read it before! This contains four chapters, each its own individual story. Owl, himself, is not the brightest bulb in the package and while very polite and considerate he ends up in the silliest situations because of his own misunderstandings. Three of the stories follow this theme, while the third is a simple tale that shows his simple ways of making tea. Owl is a dear you can't help but love because of his simple yet good-natured ways. My son was laughing joyously at the antics Owl ends up in and Lobel's illustrations of course add volumes to the simple easy reader text. Arnold Lobel is well known for his illustrations but he was also a master of the easy reader. His books contain both phonetic and common sight words making them appropriate for readers who have passed the basic phonics level. A fun book to read aloud to youngers and a perfect easy reader.
