Owls in the Family, by Farley Mowat, is set on the shores of the South Saskatchewan River. It is a timeless story about two boys exploring their environment after a long prairie winter. The smell of the thawing wheat fields and the warming earth draws them to wide open spaces like gophers scampering out of their burrows. They are on a mission to find an owl's nest. Through their initial quest they will learn precious lessons about animals and people. This Novel Study provides a teacher and student section with a variety of activities, discussion questions, evaluation, and answer key to create a well-rounded lesson plan.
