Our whole class reading book for this term is called ‘The Owl who is Afraid of the Dark’

Plop, the Baby Barn Owl, is like every Barn Owl there ever was, except for one thing - he is afraid of the dark. "Dark is nasty" he says and so he won't go hunting with his parents. Mrs Barn Owl sends him down from his nest-hole to ask about the dark and he meets a little boy waiting for the fireworks to begin, an old lady, a scout out camping, a girl who tells him about   Father Christmas, a man with a telescope and a black cat who takes him exploring. He realizes that through these  encounters that dark is super after all. Plop is a baby owl. Perfect in every way !
