The whole family loved this beautiful picture book. The illustrations are beautiful and it was very engaging to follow little elf owl through his life to learn more about him and the desert biome that he calls home.
This book started so many great conversations and had my kids wanting to learn more & more on ecosystems!
My kids enjoyed this beautifully illustrated story about a year in the life of a little elf owl. We just spent a few days down south in the desert, so reading this book was timely. They were excited to see pictures of some of the creatures we learned about at the state park we visited. They always love learning about nature through stories!
This was a great addition to our ecosystems unit. My kids enjoyed reading together and the illustrations are beautiful.
I read this with my kids, 11, 9, and 7. We absolutely loved the beautiful illustrations that helped bring to life the elf owl and his habitat. We liked learning about the elf owl through this engaging story. We also took the opportunity to find the laughing call of the elf owl on the Internet and see if we shared any of the same animals in our desert. I love books like this that inspire wonder beyond what the book contains!
The Sonoran Desert stretches from the southwestern United States down through western Mexico and is home to many creatures, including one of the world’s tiniest and cutest birds of prey: the elf owl. We will follow him through his ecosystem as he goes about his nightly business, and then join him as he ventures out on his own during the day. There is always something interesting to observe at any time of day or night in this surprisingly biodiverse ecosystem.
