This is Owl

Books that include interactive components are so much fun for kids (we love the book Press Here by Herve Tullet for that very reason!). Kids will feel a part of the story as they wake Owl up, help him fly and discover a special surprise in Owl’s nest. It is a heart-warming story that is sure to become a family favorite!

Here are some speech and language tips as you read through this story. Because the story is so hands-on, it lends itself to a lot of spontaneous interaction!

  • /w/ – welcome, woods, owl, wake, we, waiting, wave, world
  • /t/ – turn, tickle, tummy, times, tilt, together
  • s-blends – special, start, switch, sweep
  • l-blends – blow, closer, cleaned, clap, cloud, flap, fly, please
  • vocabulary: nocturnal, audience, distracted, tilt, disaster, twigs
  • pronouns you, me, we, I, they, your, their
  • different actions to do throughout the book – tickle Owl’s tummy, clap three times, draw a moon, tilt the page, flap the pages together, draw some twigs, blow a kiss – work on following directions!
    • Use ‘stop’ and ‘go’ when performing these actions
  • Negation – no, nope, not
  • ‘who’, ‘what’ and ‘where’ questions asked within the story’s text and many additional ‘wh’ questions you can ask as you read. There are many opportunities for prediction!

Here is a free printable to go along with the story. See if your child can find all of these forest animals in the book! You can print these (along with the black/white versions) over on my Teachers Pay Teachers site here.

Love these little pages!
