From the Publisher

Praise for Owl Diaries #1:

An Amazon Best Book of 2015 -- Ages 6-8

An Amazon Best Book of the Month, January 2015

"Bright and colorful digital illustrations, large type, frequent speech bubbles and a familiar story make this accessible to emerging readers.…This series promises to fill a niche for [new readers.] Keep flapping, Eva!" -- Kirkus

"Appealing visuals (the text and art are set against the lined pages of Eva's diary), punny dialogue, a few pratfalls, and Eva's unflagging enthusiasm make for lively reading." -- Publishers Weekly

"This early chapter book is a nice step between first readers and series such as Barbara Parks's 'Junie B. Jones' and Mary Pope Osborne's 'Magic Tree House.'" -- School Library Journal

"The colorful, adorable illustrations will be irresistible to young readers. The simple text interspersed with speech bubble dialogue will engage beginning and intermediate readers alike. This appealing chapter book will be a nice addition to a library's young reader section." -- Library Media Connection

Children's Literature - Joyce Rice
Eva Wingdale gives readers a look into her diary as she writes all about what it is like to be an owl. She shares the things she likes and things she does not like. In her diary, she writes about her teacher and her classmates and how much fun they have learning about all sorts of things. When her teacher, Miss Featherbottom, is spotted with a handsome young owl, all the students are excited to discover that Miss Featherbottom is getting married and she has invited all of her students to be a part of the wedding. As they make plans to help with the “something borrowed, something blue” tradition of weddings, Miss Featherbottom’s necklace that belonged to her grandmother is lost. The students ban together to prepare for the wedding and to solve the mystery of the missing necklace. This is a fun, read-aloud story for elementary classrooms. Vocabulary words include simple, fun words that have been made up by the owls. Words such as flappy-fabulous, Owlifornia and wing-credible teach students to have fun with language. This is an illustrated early chapter book for first and second grade readers. Other titles in this “Owl Diaries” series include Eva’s Treetop Festival; Eva Sees a Ghost; and Eva and the New Owl. These stories teach students about keeping diaries and journals and the sort of stories that could be kept in this format. The bright, primary color illustrations and the depiction of the owl creatures will delight even the youngest reader. Reviewer: Joyce Rice; Ages 6 to 9.
