This is a lyrical and reassuring story about growing up and leaving the barn to dance on one's own.

At the biggest barn owl dance of the year, the Leave the Nest Fall Fest, keen dancer Berkeley shines as usual. Next moonrise, however, she and her fellow fledglings Bo and Bree must leave home. Though Berkeley is frightened, the winking, smiling, laughing moon lights her way. After thousands of silent wingbeats, she finds a new audience, and Flippity, Tappity, Clap Clap Clap, Berkeley's new barn dance begins.

Berkeley's Barn Owl Dance ushers children into an unseen animal world, while the young owl's journey will help them prepare to spread their wings and fly on their own.

Cute picture's but I thought the story line got lost halfway through the book.
