Owl video!

Middle grade students (3-6) love stories and fantasies about owls.  Two of the most popular are:

(From the publisher)-“Poppy, a timid dormouse, is a loyal, obedient subject of Ocax, the hoot owl who rules Dimwood Forest–until she sees Ocax devour her fiance. To prove that the intimidating ruler who promised to protect mice is a phony, Poppy embarks on a dangerous and eye-opening quest, which ends with her one-on-one battle with Ocax. Winner of the “Horn Book” Award.”

And the series:

(From the publisher)-“In the first book in the GUARDIANS series, the reader is introduced to Soren, a barn owl and the centerpiece of the series. When Soren is pushed from his family’s nest by his older brother, he is rescued from certain death on the forest floor by agents from a mysterious school for orphaned owls, St. Aggie’s. When Soren arrives at St. Aggie’s, he suspects there is more to the school than meets the eye. He and his new friend, the clever and scrappy Gylfie, find out that St. Aggie’s is actually a training camp where the school’s leader can groom young owls to help achieve her goal.”

So what it it about owls that fascinate young readers? Is it their beauty? Their mystery? Or is it their danger? Watch the video below for an incredible glimpse of the power of the OWL:
