A Halloween Zoo: Owls

Where would Santa be without his reindeer? Could there be a better delivery system for Easter eggs than the Easter Bunny? Doesn’t a turkey make you think of Thanksgiving?

Many holidays have an animal symbol associated with them, but Halloween seems to have more than any other. From owls to spiders to bats, there’s no way to escape our feathered, long legged, and flying friends in the month of October. This week, we’re exploring the Halloween Zoo and sharing some of our favorite books about each creature. Today, we’ll hoot with the owls!


Owls aren’t the only creatures in Divya Srinavasan’s wonderful Little Owl’s Night, but those luminous eyes on the book’s cover show you just who the star of this moonlight tale should be! 

From the first page, we loved the owl friends in Rebecca Elliott’s Owl Diaries early chapter books. In this installment, Eva might have seen a ghost, but nobody believes her. Whooo will help her investigate?

Even the very youngest listeners can enjoy books about our feathered owl friends! In My Tree combines a sturdy board book with a felt finger puppet for reading and playtime fun!

After reading other books about owls, you and your young readers might have questions about real owls. Whooo better than National Geographic to offer up real facts and beautiful photos about owls, their habitats, and their lives?

You can find books about owls on the Reading Club website now (and all year long!)
