This book makes me laugh each time when the solution comes around. That's a good Mom. ( )

This book is about a baby owl that keeps being told he is cute by all the other animals. Baby owl doesn't want to be cute, he wants to be a "huge sleek hunting machine with great big see in the dark eyes". Baby owl goes to his mom concerned that everyone thinks he's cute and his mom says he's not he a "huge sleek hunting machine with great big see in the dark eyes" and baby owl is happy again.
This is a good story because it gives different vocabulary and shows children that people may have different views on the same person or thing. The illustrations are really cute too. ( )

In my opinion, this is an average book. It is good in that the language is easy to read, and the characters are believable. But, the book doesn't have a great plot. The main character is a baby owl and it goes through the forest bumping into other animals that call it cute. It responds that it is not cute, that instead it is a hunting machine. The baby owl takes being called cute as an insult instead of a compliment. After bumping into three other characters, the owl goes back to its mother and explains it's day. The owls mother then proceeds to agree with the baby that it is not cute. And in that moment, the owl realizes it does indeed want to be cute. The main idea of this story is that you don't want to grow up too fast. The owl wanted to be a full grown hunting machine, but it was nice to also be a cute baby. ( )
