Did you know that the biggest owl has a wingspan of five feet? That's big! The smallest owl is no bigger than an avocado. Filled with photographs and vivid illustrations, this book will teach you all about these beautiful birds.

Excerpt:
When the owlets are about one month old, they are ready to leave the nest.
At first, owlets hop from branch to branch.
They grab onto tree bark.
They wander around on the ground.
They practice flapping their wings.
Look!
They are flying!
The owlets are now called fledglings(say: FLEJ-lings).
Emily Sollinger is an editor and author of many books for children. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.
