WHOOOO's IN THE SHOWER?
Borden's father is a logger, and he hates the owls. It's the owls that have kept Borden's dad out of work. Borden decides he hates them too, until one day he stumbles upon a baby owl. He is convinced it isn't a spotted owl, the endangered species whose life is threatened by the logging community, because how could anything so cute and helpless threaten people's jobs? It isn't long before both Borden and his father Leon, learn a lot from the baby owl Bardy. THERE'S AN OWL IN THE SHOWER by Jean Craighead George, shows how logging affects the world we live in, and how things can change for the better. For 4th grade and up.
