A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this book.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this striking book, another classic by Kevin Henkes, is perfect for cuddling up with your toddler and exploring the magic of birds. It contains nothing inappropriate.
Is It Any Good?
The world of birds is magical, and this simple, elegant book definitely captures that magic in both language and artwork. With a few lines of text on each page, Henkes says what he wants to say in a clear, yet poetic way. And the pictures, painted in heavily outlined acrylics, do the same.
It would be hard not to pick up this book with its bold blue cover and brightly colored birds. Once you have it in your hands, you won't put it down. It's a beautiful book that will capture the imaginations of kids of all ages and let them fly.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
