Have you heard an owl hoot at night? Have you ever wanted to see the owl and perhaps even sing along with it? Rudy is a cardinal who loves the sound of the owl’s hoot. In Dolores Frazer’s Rudy and the Owl, Rudy’s not sure what’s making that sound at night, but when he finds out, he makes it his mission to locate the owl and sing along with it. He asks the moon for help and, on his nightly journeys, he meets other flying creatures of the night like a bat and a flock of crows. Nothing makes the musical song that he seeks; the hoo-hoo-hoo of the owl. He’s not about to give up on his dream; he’s determined to make music with an owl. All he needs is the full moon and the hoo-hoo-hoos to lead the way.
Dolores Frazer’s picture book, Rudy and the Owl, is a charming story about a cardinal with a musical dream to find and sing with an owl. Told in rhyming verse, this lyrical treasure will capture the minds and imaginations of young readers. The language is simple so young readers can easily follow along and, with spectacular watercolor illustrations, young readers will learn about other flying creatures of the night. There is a subtle, yet powerful message in this story: never give up on your dreams. It also demonstrates the alluring power of music and good friendship. Young readers will want to discuss what they learn in this story and what they see in the illustrations. This is a great read: interactive, educational, engaging, and entertaining.
