This was a fairly cute little book. I really enjoyed the sweet and simplistic illustrations, they suited the book rather well. I would probably recommend this book, especially if one loved Owls.

Almost poetically written with a light touch, this book tells the story of a little barn owl off to find her own place, first with her brothers and then on her own. At first she is afraid to venture out, but Mama and Papa owl gently encourage her as her "new dance" is beginning.

At the Leave the Nest Fall Fest, Berkeley and her fellow friends dance the night away, but when the next moonrise comes, she, along with her fellow fledglings, must leave home and, despite their fears, find a new place to dance!

Sweet story with adorable pencil-and-colors illustrations of a barn owl who loves to dance, but is nervous about finding a home of her own now that she's old enough.

Leaving the nest. A scary process, but Berkeley finds
her barn and begins to grow up.
