The parents' guide to what's in this book. Educational Value The author really digs into the world of owls and their attributes. After just the first book kids will know what each kind of feather is for, how the placement of owl ears helps them locate their prey so precisely, the attributes of various species of owls and even their species names.
Positive Messages Wonderful messages about friendship, overcoming great loss and oppression through the help of friends and strength of character, believing in your individuality, understanding the power of legends and story-telling, and believing that you can do something helps make it so.
The second book helps the owls discover their gifts and "be all that they can be" in the service of the owl community. The third finds them sneaking out against the wishes of the older owl community, but in service of an old teacher they are trying to rescue. Soren is more sensitive, a great storyteller, and fiercely protective of what is right and good.
Gylfie is incredibly smart and brave. In the second book older owls mentor the younger ones and try to bring out their gifts. By the third, Soren has grown into a dedicated leader. Violence Owl chicks are taken away from their parents and put through mind-erasing exercises. Two owl chicks talk at length about how losing their parents has affected them.
A couple owls are killed, with some blood, but sadness and loss are described more than the act itself. A story is told of larger owls eating an owl chick.
Vampire bats drain groups of owls of blood. The second book is milder, though a bobcat gets a coal dropped on his eye and his throat slit.
The third book mentions owl prisoners being forced to sleep in crypts. Sex Language "Hell" is uttered a couple times, as is "racdrops," short for "raccoon droppings" and considered offensive talk for owls.
Consumerism Adult owls drink at celebrations.
In book 3 one passes out drunk. What parents need to know Parents need to know that the first three books in this bestselling series are the basis of a September movie called Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'hoole. The first and best book contains the most violence and sadness -- young owls are snatched away from their parents and brainwashed.
Some older owls are killed and young owls who escape them try to find their parents and discover they are probably dead. In one scene, vampire bats prey on imprisoned owls. The other two books focus more on young owl training and the building of friendships with some scenes in forest fires and a climatic battle with fire and specialized battle claws used as weapons.
Wonderful messages of friendship, leadership, and believing in yourself, and using your gifts for good are weaved through the series. Stay up to date on new reviews. Get full reviews, ratings, and advice delivered weekly to your inbox.I liked this book because it is about owls, and i like owls.
