Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
Certain that no one will bother them, Baby Owl takes his toy Owly for a stroll in the moonlight. He encounters a series of concerned creatures, each warning him not to be afraid, although it is late and dark. To each, Baby Owl indignantly replies, "I'm NOT scared," noting in ever-increasing type that owls are just fine at night in the dark. When Papa turns up, Baby Owl insists that only Owly is scared. But Papa gives both Owly and Baby Owl the loving comfort they need before they are finally tucked into bed. Black felt-pen lines pick up facial features and bits of landscape, but the major impression is made by boldly applied translucent paints in the expected animal colors—brown for bear, gray for badger, tan and white for the owls. The multiple images of Baby Owl on the covers display how emotions like anxiety can be expressed in the simplest of ways. The very young will get the reassuring message even without being able to read the words. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz

    I'm Not Scared...I refuse to be!

    I love this book. The little owl is so brave, and has lots of animals who watch over him and help him find his way through the woods at night.

    I'm Not Scared

    I purchased this for my four year old Granddaughter who was scared of the dark, scared of bugs, and just plain scared. Now she carries this book around with her proclaiming she is no longer scared! She's still working on issues with the bugs. I would reccomend this for any little one who has some scarey issues.

    Funny and amusing

    Yes, it's what owls do. Never read the first one but this sort of helped get my son talking about what might scare him. It's a good short book for bedtime reading.

    Wonderful Book to Read to Young Children

    My very active 2.5 year old grandson loves to hear stories read out loud. After two readings of "I'm Not Scared!" he was able to fill-in-the-missing-words when I would stop and patiently wait for him to remember. Now he reads the book to me!! Well, not actually reads it, but he sure does know the story and because of the wonderful illustrations, he can tell right where we are now and what comes next. Love this book!
