A sweet, uplifting tale about the value and importance of dedication, zeal, and grit…
Enright’s debut children’s picture book is a captivating story about Erin, a little owl, who discovers the importance of practice and perseverance. Erin the Owl yearns to dance elegantly, yet it’s challenging for the her. Each misstep makes the animals laugh at her clumsiness. But when raccoon, bunny, and beaver see how downcast Erin is, they tell her to practice harder so she can learn to dance. Will Erin ever master this skill? The book’s simple, straightforward text pairs perfectly with its delightful illustrations. Enright makes great use of simple, semi-rhythmic text to lend momentum and rhythm to the lines, making it a fun read. The book is aimed at youngsters. However, its message about resilience, determination, and the power of hard work is universal, and readers of all ages will find it inspiring. Gently contemplative and thoroughly lovely; a simple, winning story.
