My Little "Bill"

This is Zion's favorite book.  If you've never read this charming book to your small children, the three owls are siblings who are wondering where their mother has gone.  The oldest, Sarah, is certain that everything will be ok.  The second owl, Percy, is a bit uncertain but remains hopeful.  Sweet little Bill just keeps saying, "I want my mommy."  Bill, who adores his mommy.  Bill, who doesn't care where she has gone or why, as long as she returns.  Bill, who finishes the book (there is a happy reunion, by the way) with the exclamation, "I love my mommy!"  Bill, who is exactly who Zion would be if he had been born an owl.  My dear, sweet, adoring little "Bill."
