Our theme for this weeks is owls and we are featuring one of our favourite Owl Books, Owl Babies by Martin Waddell. We have 5 simple and fun activities that you can do with your little ones at home to learn, play, create and have fun. So here we go our Owl Themed Activity Plan for Preschoolers featuring the classic children’s picture book Owl Babies.
Virtual Book Club for Kids Featured Book Owl Babies by Martin Waddell
We have included links to the books on Amazon. If you purchase via those links we may earn a small commission.
Our featured book this week is Owl Babies by Martin Waddell. In this classic book for preschoolers, the 3 little owls wake at night to find their mother gone. They are sacred, what will happen, will she ever come back? She does and there is a great party.
This is a great book to read aloud as it’s one of the big fears of preschoolers being left alone without their parents as well as gorgeous illustrations.
