Once there were three baby owls:
Sarah and Percy and Bill.
Brief synopsis: The baby owls think their way through their mom’s absence. Or as the cover says: “(The book) … offers the gentle promise needed by every young child that Mommy will always come home.”
Why I chose this book: My son has reached the separation stage. He gets anxious and cries sometimes when I leave. He received this book as a gift. He likes the actions of the owl siblings. I like their message that Mommy returns. For now, I think it soothes me more than him.
