The Way Home (Owly #1) (Paperback)
Other Books in Series
This is book number 1 in the Owly series.
Owly is a good-natured little owl, and he's always helping those around him. But despite his kindness, he seems to frighten would-be friends away before they even give him a chance, just because he's an owl. That all changes, though, once Owly meets Wormy. Like Owly, Wormy is in need of a good friend, too -- someone who can be counted on for a helping hand, a good laugh, and a great adventure!
Through a unique blend of words and symbols, Owly can be read by the youngest readers, and is a great introduction to graphic novels!
About the Author
"Appeals to all ages... Equally noteworthy are the expressive drawings and universal lessons of persistence, kindness, and loyalty." -- People
"Delightfully sweet... Even readers older than the target audience will appreciate the book's simple charm, wisdom, and warmth." -- Booklist
A well-balanced book that shows one young Chinese girl's experience immigrating with her family to California. At times funny, heart-wrenching, and innovative, this book shows the difficulties of starting over in a new country in a way that a young reader would be able to understand. A great book to open our eyes to the different and sometimes unseen ways people struggle and how we can make the world a better place by being more inclusive and willing to listen to other's stories. - Jessica
