There was a wise owl who lived in an oak,

 The more he heard, the less he spoke...

 The nights are getting longer, the leaves on the trees are changing colour and there’s a definite chill in the air. These are all signs that summer is over and autumn has just begun. While you might be feeling sad about the loss of the warm and light summer days, a wise person once said that, ‘a change is as good as a rest.’ It’s good to remember that as the plants shed their seeds and leaves, a period of rest is about to begin for the natural world, a rest that will allow everything to grow once more when spring arrives. In this issue you will find three stories all about the wisdom of owls and the power of oak trees. 

As well as gaining huge wisdom from these traditional stories, by the time you have finished reading this magazine, we hope you’ll know:

    How to make ink out of oak galls

    If owls really are the wisest birds

    How to say ‘owl’ in other languages

    Where a ‘chicken of the woods’ might be found

    How to draw a fox

    ... And much more!

Activities are laid out in order, and span a suggested timeline of 3 days, making this a fabulous resource for homeschooling.
