1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Nicola Manning-Mansfield HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Dec 21 2009
Format: Paperback
Reason for Reading: My son read this aloud to me.

Comments: I'm very familiar with this book but had never actually read it before! This contains four chapters, each its own individual story. Owl, himself, is not the brightest bulb in the package and while very polite and considerate he ends up in the silliest situations because of his own misunderstandings. Three of the stories follow this theme, while the third is a simple tale that shows his simple ways of making tea.

Owl is a dear you can't help but love because of his simple yet good-natured ways. My son was laughing joyously at the antics Owl ends up in and Lobel's illustrations of course add volumes to the simple easy reader text. Arnold Lobel is well known for his illustrations but he was also a master of the easy reader. His books contain both phonetic and common sight words making them appropriate for readers who have passed the basic phonics level. A fun book to read aloud to youngers and a perfect easy reader.

I read this series when I was young and I read them in turn to my own children. They are funny and my kids wanted them read again and again. They are true classics.

This even surpasses the Forg and Toad books, which every child must read. As good as children's books get!

I read this book like crazy when I was in Kindergarten. The art in the book is great, seriously. From the weather moot Owl story to the others, the art is so wonderful. I think that's one of the better parts of this book. The mood and enrivonment is so enticing.
It was actually quite funny I remember as a kid.
It's insane to look back on this after a decade or more. I recommend this book to anyone looking for Children's Stories, either at school for teachers or for families.

LOVE this book. Love it. My son loves it. I love the story about Tear-Water Tea. And...the last one about the moon. Great writing. Great story telling.

I recommend this book because it is fantastic. The book is about an owl that lives alone and invites the winter to come sit by the fire. My favorite chapter is Owl and the Moon. He likes the moon and one time he sat on a rock and saw the moon. When he went home he noticed that the moon was following him. This is a good book for children of any age to read.

Owl At Home is the only �Owl� book that Lobel produced. Composed of five delightful tales, children will be delighted at the antics of owl and his misunderstandings!
In the story, The Guest, Owl invites winter into his home with all of her fury! Snow is everywhere and his pea soup becomes frozen. Shooing winter out the door, winter closes the door with a bang and Owl settles down once his fire is lit and warmth seeps back into this home. His soup thaws and Owl is once again contented!
Strange Bumps is hysterical as Owl tries to figure out why there are two bumps at the end of his bed, under his covers! Owl�s gyrations under the bed and under the covers are guaranteed to bring many laughs! Owl cannot figure out where they came from or why they will not leave. He finally settles into his easy chair in front of the fire to get a good night�s sleep!
Tear-Water Tea is delightful as we see Owl cooking is favorite tear-water tea with his own tears. He thinks of all the sad things he can, such as mornings nobody saw because everybody was sleeping and pencils that are too short to use. Filling up his kettle with his tears, he is ready to enjoy his favorite tea! A tad bit salty for me though.
Upstairs and Downstairs depicts Owl running up and down his stairs to check on how the upstairs is doing and how the downstairs is doing. Owl does this all day long and into the evening and he discovers how tired he is and he cannot be in two places at once!
Owl and the Moon is a cute tale of Owl befriending the Moon. Owl knows that the Moon cannot fit through his door, and it saddens him that the Moon, his friend, cannot come into his house. Getting ready for bed, Owl notices that Moon is shining outside and has indeed followed him home.

I had owl at home in my library of children's books over 20 years ago. My daughter, now almost 28 y/o loved the book. Many times during her college years when a crisis occurred, she would call me in tears and beg me to read her tear-water tea....
It tastes a little bit salty -- but tear-water tea is always very good!
