When we spotted this wise owls at Tierracast, we thought immediately of the children’s book, Owl Babies by author Martin Waddell. It’s a story Janice’s grandson, Eli, loves hearing before bed...and it’s about three baby owls who wait for the Mommy Owl to return. And, of course, she does! This fun metal bead is made in California of metal that is free of lead and nickel. They are considered hypoallergenic.
