Summary A Barred owl becomes injured and must ask others for help. He promises to give back to those who have a generous heart and he is true to his word.

The Christmas Owl is a touching and heartwarming story that teaches children about compassion and good will. As the owl treks through the forest in search of places to rest he meets many animals who are a bit uneasy at his presence, but the owl ensures them he will bring them no harm and instead offers to return kindness for kindness. Will the owl keep his promise?
Told in verse, The Christmas Owl will capture the hearts of both children and parents while reminding us that when we decide to do good and help others, good things will also come our way.
The illustrations are simply breathtaking. Delicate and detailed they give The Christmas Owl a warm and cozy feeling even in the cold of winter.
I highly recommend picking up The Christmas Owl. Perfect for the upcoming holiday season.

I was born in California to a military family. This meant that I was the "new kid" in school every couple of years. It was hard always trying to make new friends, but I discovered I had a knack for writing. I began writing poetry in high school and really enjoyed expressing myself by using pen and paper. After becoming a Mom in 2003, I continued my storytelling to my own children. In 2009 I wrote and published my first children's book aimed at toddlers. In 2012 I am set to release several more children's books. Check out what I'm working on by visiting my children's book blog. Writing is such a wonderful creative process and I look forward to sharing more of my stories with lots of new little readers!
