Owl Moon, by Jane Yolen
Transcript of Owl Moon, by Jane Yolen
Think Together: Identify the details that support my idea that the mood is hushed and mysterious. What is the relationship between the mood and the illustrations? The author's tone reflects
the sense of anticipation
in the owlingadventure.
The narrator and her father
do not get to see an owl, but
they understand and accept
their circumstances. I'm
summing up that tone:
it's a tone of quiet resignation
Think together: What details
generate anticipation? What
details show resignation and
acceptance? Yolen's writing sparkles! The descriptions paint such beautiful pictures. The sensory image of a furry mouth, the wondering what hides behind huge shadows, the snow that looks whiter than the milk in a cereal bowl-the details add to both the tone and mood. What tone and mood do the help create? Partners, think together:
Which details were most
important in helping Jane Yolen
communicate both mood and tone?
Why is it important for us as readers
to identify mood? What about tone?
