Synopsis

Little Owlet wakes on a moonlit night.
His mama says, "It's time you took flight."


This little Owlet does not want to be out by himself in the dark. But Mama believes he can be brave, so he decides to leave the nest for the first time. As Owlet makes his way through the sky to explore the sights and sounds of nighttime, he runs into a few frightening obstacles along the way, but he eventually learns that being brave can be a fun adventure!

Perfect for reading at bedtime to relieve nighttime anxiety, watching Owlet fly through the sky will show young readers that things may not always be as scary as they first seem.
