“Baby Owl's Rescue wins the heart of children, respect of teachers, and my approval for accuracy and the author's presentation of facts and wildlife rescue strategies.” – Epinions

“This book is definitely worth reading, if not owning, especially if you have children who are outdoor-lovers and who might be tempted to bring Mother Nature home to you upon finding it!” – Katie’s Literature Lounge

“Sylvan Dell has another great hit on its hands. This is a wonderful story, but also a perfect, much-needed contribution to nature reading for kids.”- The Reading Tub
