One winter, as food gets scarce, a snowy owl finds herself forced to look in new and unfamiliar spots in order to find food and a place to call home.

Based on a true story, A Snowy Owl Story describes, through the tale of one particular owl, the recent irruption of snowy owls all across the United States. Beautifully told by Melissa Kim and illustrated by Jada Fitch, the book won the Sigurd F. Olson Nature Writing Awards for Children's Notable Book in 2015.

Through this simple narrative, youngsters will learn about migration, adaptation, and respectful human interaction with nature. This unique series is written and designed specifically for a preschool market; few board books exist that tell conservation stories for this age range.

The book was published in cooperation with Maine Audubon and is part of the “Wildlife on the Move” series of board books.
