Learning to read



A baby owl falls from the nest and begins a quest to find his mummy. Squirrel tries to help, but the characteristics described by baby owl lead to all the wrong creatures. Reunion is eventually achieved because mummy is searching for him too. A repetitive and patterned text aids the reader as do the picture cues within the illustrations which make unusual and arresting use of colour and shape.
