SUMMARY OF THE MENTOR TEXT: 

One night, three baby owls: Percy, Sarah, and Bill wake up to find their mother is not there. Feeling nervous at first, the baby owls decide their mother must be out hunting. However, the longer they wait the more scared they feel.

The three owl babies wait outside their home on a branch looking for their mother. It is dark in the woods and the owls sit together trying to be brave. Finally, Owl Mother swoops down and comes home to her babies. They are relieved to have her home.

Students will love this sweet story about the three baby owls.
