“The Christmas Owl” is the latest book from AngelaMuse. Angela was born into a military family, which meant she had to get used to being the "new kid" in school every couple of years. It was hard for her to make new friends, but she soon discovered she had a knack for writing. In high school, Angela began writing poetry and song lyrics and, after becoming a mom in 2003, she continued her storytelling to her own children. In 2009, she wrote and self-published her first children's book. Since then, she has published several additional children's picture books – as well as her first young adult romance novel! – through Amazon’s independent publishing platforms, CreateSpace (for print books) and Kindle Direct Publishing (for e-books).
We have read this book at least 10 times in the past week. In this story an injured owl looks for help from other animals. Although they are all nervous and leery of him, they do help him and eventually he recover. On his way back to his home Christmas Eve and every year after, he makes passes by all his animal helpers homes and repays them with gifts to thank them for their kindness when he needed them most.
I believe this is a beautiful story that everyone should read to their children at least once and the amazing artwork from Helen H. Wu, just adds to it.
