it was amazing

I found this book while I happened to be looking for a different one. Owly is wordless except for a few brief frames. It used questions marks to the characters' confusion and worry, and it used an exclamation mark for surprise and excitement. The stor focused on friendship and helping those in need. It showed how animals can be misunderstood like the oppossum who I wasn't even sure what it was until the story clarified it for me. As I read, I found myself becoming more aware of the strategies I was using for comprehension. I also noticed that I started to create the words to the story/plot as I went through the pages. This would be great to teach inferencing to students.
