An Owl’s Crossing Favorite song:

Little Seed

(Tune:  I’m a little teapot)

Here’s a little seed,

In the dark, dark ground.

Out comes the warm sun,

Yellow and round.

Down comes the rain,

Wet and slow.

Up comes the little seed,

Grow, grow, grow!

Hoot of the Month

How can you tell the Ocean is friendly?

…..Because it “waves”!
