Megan Owlet - Children's Book #Review! #MeganOwlet

Megan Owlet doesn’t want to play basketball, learn karate, or practice the violin. Every day she goes and cheers her brothers on as they take part in their own activities, but one morning she wakes up and realizes she’s bored! It’s time for Megan to find something of her own to do. After an unsuccessful brainstorming session with her animal friends, Megan stumbles upon a dance studio, and with an excited screech she begins to dream big dreams of whirls and twirls. Dancing is trickier than Megan expected, but with a little help from her brothers, Megan can do anything!

From debut author and illustrator Beth Anne Maresca, Megan Owlet teaches children to pursue their own dreams and to be brave in making them happen. This is a story about love, support, and family, and parents and children alike will be enchanted by its heartwarming ending and beautiful watercolor illustrations.

The suggested age range for this book is 3-5 years old, but my six year old daughter loves it!

My Review:
Megan Owlet spends her weekends with her parents and brothers following them from activity to activity, but Megan doesn't have something that is her own. Megan tells her family that she wants an activity too, and her brothers have lots of ideas of what she could do. Of course, they suggest that Megan do the activities that they like to do to their sister! So Megan tries them all, but none of the activities were right for her. Then Megan Owlet and her mother leave to pick up her brothers and on their way, she spots a Dance School! Megan tries to dance at the dance school and she doesn't do well. So her brothers volunteer to show her how to jump, balance and kick and to help her move to a beat! Her brothers help Megan for weeks to prepare for a dance recital. Megan gets nervous and freezes when the curtains open, until her brothers begin cheering for her! Megan takes a deep breath and starts to dance on stage! 

Megan Owlet is an adorable children's book that shows children that they can be anything they want to be and do anything they want to do with some help, some practice, but most of all, with support from your family.

Disclosure: I received a copy of this book in exchange for my review post. No other compensation was exchanged or received.

  1. Megan Owlet sounds like a wonderful book. I would love to have the opportunity to read it with my Grandchildren. I also added this book to my "want to read" in my Goodreads account.
