Owls in the Family
Farley Mowat is a fantastic writer, and this book, published in 1961 and still in print over 50 years later, is an uplifting story about his own life as a child. Not only is this a well-written, wholesome, funny, adventurous story, but it also teaches a lot about owls and life in rural Canada in the mid-1900s. I also love the appreciation for and connection with nature that the main character displays. The town does hold a “pet parade” with awards on a Sunday, but that is all I found objectionable.
