Staff Reviews


Kevin Henkes is the master of the picture book. In this board book adaptation, he captures the delight of glimpsing birds—in trees, on telephone wires, and on the wing—while imagining what it would be like to fly. Vivid colors and playful scenes bring whimsy to life.

Description


In what the New York Times Book Review calls "a perfect book," a little girl watches birds from her window and dreams she can fly. A board book edition of the critically acclaimed picture book from the award-winning husband-and-wife team of Kevin Henkes and Laura Dronzek. An ALA Notable Book.

Birds "will resonate with the youngest children," said School Library Journal. With a fine eye for detail, a girl observes and describes birds--their sizes, their colors, their shapes, the way they move and appear and disappear, and how they are most like her. She imagines what it would be like if clouds looked like birds, or if she could ask the birds questions. Though she can't fly, the girl can do one thing birds do--she can sing. Vibrant and lively paintings accompany a text pitched precisely to preschoolers in this husband-and-wife collaboration. This board book edition offers a fresh perspective and a new point of view to very young children. Booklist said, "Together, the words and pictures create a book that will enchant preschool audiences again and again.
