This humorous Singalong Storybook from Music Together™ tells the story of many creatures, starting with one little owl, who all sit in the old oak tree--until it's had quite enough! The delightful illustrations and story make it a fun book to read and sing for children and adults alike.
This 32-page picture book inspires singing, pre-literacy learning, and imaginative play between children and their favorite adults. It includes fun activity suggestions designed to stimulate learning and music-making at home and in the classroom including counting fun and ways to create silly story variations. This picture book is based on the song One Little Owl from the award-winning Music Together Family Favorites CD.
About Music Together:
Music Together, the acclaimed international early childhood music education program for children birth through second grade, has enriched the musical lives of families around the world.

Hundreds of thousands of families have come to love Music Together classes—and our music!
One Little Owl is a fantastic visual addition to their already wonderful musical programs. Nancy Meyers' illustrations are very pleasing to the child's eye. They make you laugh and bring out that natural silliness that children want to express. The simple layout and largeness of the animals introduced differentiates the animals well and allows children to observe the animals and compare and contrast.
The song, and most Music Together Songs, have repetition and invite the singer and reader to create their own verses of the song, inspiring imagination of different animals and the unique sounds they can make. The activities listed in the back of the book are only a starting point. There are actually many more interactive ways to develop specific learning abilities. Using other languages to count the animals, having the children name the animals as you sing "three little.... said..." as you point to the words and help them develop contextual clues for literacy, and coming up with other types of trees for the animals are only a few. It is an interesting perspective to give the tree feelings. This is another aspect of this book and song that develops social emotional health. It starts conversations about caring for the natural world, people included. This book gets an A+ for developing so many aspects of a young child's brain.
My 3 year old and I really enjoyed reading the book and listening to the CD. The CD was frequently requested during car rides too!
