An Educator's View

A seven year-old turned me onto this series. As an educator, I have to say that I love this series! These stories are perfect for newly independent readers. The adorable illustrations break the short chapters into manageable chunks. The fun and exciting stories keep young readers engaged. I would recommend these books for 7-8 year-olds to read independently, and for parents to read to younger children.
In this second installment of the Owl diaries, Eva becomes convinced that she saw a ghost after her teacher tells a scary story at school one night. No one believes her, though! Except for her best friend, of course. Others doubt Eva so much that she begins to doubt herself. In order to prove the ghost exists, Eva writes, distributes, collects and reviews surveys. A beautiful early introduction to the scientific method! In the end, the entire class goes on a ghost hunt and discovers the true identity of the ghost. The ghost, or should I say ghosts, turn out to be a family of snowy owls who are moving to the neighborhood.
