    Story
    "Snow, moonlight, daughter & dad"

    What a treasure Jane Yolen has given us, a doorway into the magic of childhood but with no magic other than the love of dad and daughter, and the deep mystery of owling by moonlight.

    The audio production is clear and the story boosted by a wonderful musical track. Even better, this Audible file includes the original illustrations. Wish all audio picture books were like this.

    Story
    "Magical Experience"

    With the illustration, reading and the sound effect, this audio book unfolds a magical night owling, so vivid and peaceful. I close my eyes for an afternoon nap time and wake up in dark. As a child at the age of 30 (good for children of any age lol), living in loud city, a peaceful night owling experience seems quite unique! I enjoyed it a lot.

    Story
    "A quiet story."

    This is the bedtime story I was looking for. So many of these books are accompanied by skipping flutes and snare drums. This is a story of a quiet night of owl watching. It is read softly, and the music is soothing. My eight year old son enjoyed it. I'm forty-six and rather enjoyed it myself.

    Story
    "Great."

    I love it. The story and the performance are very soothing. Ms. Yolen did a great job conveying feeling into her reading.

    The story's not action packed enough for my 3 year old, but I think he'll like it as he gets a little older.

    "A peaceful and involving story"
    What made the experience of listening to Owl Moon the most enjoyable?

    My daughter is both calmed and completely absorbed by this book. Nothing else does that except for blueberries for sal or the snowy day. Jane Yolen has definitely risen to the heights of children's storytelling and I can only be grateful!


    What about Jane Yolen’s performance did you like?

    her sense of timing combined with her soothing tones.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    hah! it's only 8 minutes. Unless you have a one year-old I'd say yes.
