Read to my student in my class and she seemed to love it! We focused on story setting and she drew pictures from each chapter of the setting in that particular part of the book. Very cute! Can't wait to read more.

This one was not insanely adorable the way the #2 book in this series was, but it was still pretty cute. I like how they show that the "mean girl" in the book isn't a one dimensional "bad character" but she's a complete character with good qualities in addition to the bad qualities.

{My thoughts} – There was a lot going on in this book. First of all Eva’s teacher was planning a wedding and all her classmates helped. Her teacher lost her necklace and all the classmates worked together to try and find it. And a surprise birthday party was thrown for their classmate Sue.

This book helps to show children that more can be accomplished when you work together. This book series is started to remind me more and more of Wonder Pets a show my older children use to watch about classroom

ML My book review is on a book called Owl Diaries. Eva's teacher is getting married! This was a very
awesome book! My faverite part was when Eva got a plan to do a secret wedding for her teacher.
Eva has a friend named Lucy Beekerman. They have sleepover's all the time!! On there sleepover's
they make to do list's.

Did you know that owl's sleep in the day and are awake at night.

I would recommend people who like animals.

Cute chapter book about an owlet named Eva Wingdale. The premise is Eva has a diary to keep track of her adventures. This is the only book I've read in the series.

I loved the journal aesthetic throughout the book what with the lined paper, a typeface that mimics handwriting, and illustrations that look like colored paper.

I had mixed feelings about the puns. I was fine with Owlifornia, pinephones (pinecones + telephones), owlementary, flap-tastic, feathercut, Winglish, owlsome, owliverse, wing-credible, The Hootles, Wingdale, Beakman, Clawson, and Featherbottom; but I thought flaperrific, owlman, and flappy-fabulous were too much of a stretch.

Like other books in Scholastic's Branches series, this is a mix of early chapter book and comic book. There are lots of colour pictures with speech bubbles and colourful To Do Lists and large font text. It works well for Miss 3 (although it can get frustrating for me when she wants to point at every single speech bubble) and there are enough colour pictures that she can sit down and 'read' the book to herself.

Miss 3 and I like to explore different books at the library and try to get different on

Muchos niños de mi escuela leen los libros de esta serie. Este libro es muy divertido, especialmente con las mascotas de las lechuzas. Estoy leyendo esta serie en español para practicar. (Many children at my school read the books in this series. This book is a lot of fun, especially with the owls' pets. I am reading this series in Spanish for practice.)

Miss Featherbottom is getting married and her owlementary school class has winged together to create a secret wedding club to help with the many wedding duties. Another totally cute, totally teamwork Owl Diary, with a little mystery thrown in for good measure.

Review by an 8 year old

“This book is really good and I like weddings” words from my 8 year old. She can relate to the school situations. Good for her reading level.

My first grader loves these books. Cute, colorful illustrations, clever "owl" speak, good lessons, and sweet characters.

I like to read books that kids tell me they like, so I can understand what they enjoy. This is one of them. Here's what I like: I found the cutout collage-like illustrations charming, they way they call things that are uncool "squirrelly", and the lined paper diary format. Funny..I found Mrs Featherbottom a bit of a Bridezilla who keeps harping on her lost necklace. Things I didn't like so much: I think the biggest one is that there is gender stereotyping. Girls like pretty wedding things and so ...more

A Woodland Wedding is the third book in Rebecca Elliott's Owl Diaries series. I have found each book adorable and enjoyable. I find the main character, Eva Wingdale, to be a joy to spend time with for the most part. In this book in the series, Eva is super-super excited that her teacher is getting married, and that she has invited the entire class to help her with her wedding preparations. In addition to all the wedding talk, this one has a bit of a mystery too.

Brand-new readers may enjoy practicing their newly-acquired reading skills by reading this book about a class of owls and their teacher. When Miss Featherbottom, their teacher, announces her wedding plans, the owls are all thrilled for her and excited to be a part of the wedding. But things start to go amiss, and her heirloom necklace goes missing. It's up to Eva and her friends to solve the mystery, save the day, and insure that the woodland wedding goes off without a hitch. There's also some d ...more

Eva and Friends always have fun, and this story is no exception. It comes complete with a sneaky friend, a theft, and a wedding. How could that not be exciting?!?

When Miss Featherbottom's necklace turns up missing days before her wedding, Eva and Friends suspect Sue Clawson, who is in hiding, and who seems to hate weddings. In reality, Sue's mother is making the wedding dress and Sue feels she forgot her birthday, which is the day after the wedding. In reality, a pet stole the necklace, so Eva
*I received a free copy of this book from the publisher through my district library services*

These beginning chapter books are very popular. The illustrations are colorful and fun. Some of the made up words are a little goofy, but add a bit of whimsy to the story. Little girls who like to imagine their weddings or plan for parties will enjoy this light read.

[ATA After reading another wedding-related book I realized how much it annoys me when books for young girls focus on the peripheral aspects

I am blazing through this series. It's adorable. We get a special wedding in this one and Eva and all her friends are very excited. As someone who is currently planning a wedding, I enjoyed the silliness that a class could plan an entire wedding in less then a week. And the humor runs well throughout. This may be my new favorite early chapter book series.

For: fans of owls; fans of weddings; readers wanting a diary format and fun illustrations.

This is a great little "branch" (hahahaha ... oh please yourself) book about the further adventures of Eva a little forest owl. Eva's teacher is getting married! Almost everyone is very excited but will Miss Featherbottom find all the items she needs in time for the wedding? And who took her special necklace? And how could anyone not like weddings?

This was the first one in the series we read and definitely has been re-read. I was glad my daughter her chose this as one of the books she bought at book fair, because it's a challenge for her, but she loves the illustrations and lots of the same things as Eva, so it keeps her reading. I enjoy them as well and they are equally good as read alouds and read independently.
The illustrations are so cute I wanted to love this book. There are many play-on-words with owl life but rather than funny they felt overdone and sort of wore on me. The story also felt to drag on and the characters were a little slow, too. This book did not capture attention and did not hold interest.

Such a cute little series! So fun for a beginner reader with adorable characters who go through relatable circumstances that the younger reader may go through. My eight year old daughter, who does not enjoy reading, read the series during her Christmas break, without nudging from me!

Only three stars because the teacher's lack of wedding planning and letting her students bake the cake + decorate + find the band the day before the wedding was giving me second-hand stress. But obviously super cute.

The colorful illustrations and limited text on each page will appeal to beginning chapter book readers. Readers who are not quite ready for Diary of a Wimpy Kid can start with this series and work their way up.
