A classic children story teaches being your own person. It is rather long (as for a kid), but nicely divided into many short chapters. Unlike some today children books, it has some more advanced words sprinkled in that would be good for teaching. The story is about an owl who finds what he truly loves in life (the meadow and sunshine) and is able to finally feel comfortable and accepted doing what he loves. Great for a parent to read to a child or for older children who have been reading for a while.
