PRAISE FOR Owls are Good at Keeping Secrets:

“Animals, who are hiding behind each letter of the alphabet, are revealed as we explore the book.
They, the key characters and true focus of the journey, have attributes that most children will recognize.”–starred review Booklist

“The light sprinkle of visual and verbal humor keeps the book’s truisms from feeling stale… Don’t let the owls keep this unusual book secret. It deserves to be shared.”Kirkus

“Sara O’Leary imbues animals with human characteristics in her new abecedarian . . . Jacob Grant excels at stirring up genuine feeling.” —Quill & Quire

“[A] whimsical alphabet book featuring animals with a message of self-acceptance.” —CBC Montreal

“[A] refreshing bit of imagination to our observations on the animal kingdom. Children will be able to see themselves in one or more of the animals and find validation for their own quirky personalities.” —CM Magazine

“O’Leary’s ‘facts’ teeter slyly between fantasy, fact and joke. . . . Nicely surprising.” Toronto Star

“[A] sweet and silly alphabet book. . . . [Readers] will happily play along with O’Leary’s funny fibs.” Publishers Weekly

“This book is a fun addition to the growing selection of alphabet books with animals not normally used, all the while doing activities that you may not have known they did.–Resource Links
