Longer book more suited to the beginning of storytime. Beautiful art. Highly relatable for children with anxiety about parents who are gone for work or some such. Good for themes like: owls, nocturnal animals, birds, and emotions (specifically worry/fear). ( )

Three owl babies woke up to find their mother not there. She didn't come home for a couple of days and they were very worried. They thought that she left them only to be surprised that she did come back. The mother assured the little ones that she will always come back. This book is great for toddlers to pre school aged children. This book offers the gentle promise that children need that Mommy will come home. ( )
