Birds by Kevin Henkes, illustrated by Laura Dronzek

2009/32 pgs

About the Book: A young child's thoughts on birds.

Sarah Teenlibrarian Says: This isn't a book that relies on an overarching plot, but instead is told in small vignettes and various thoughts on birds from the young child that narrates the book. There are observations about the size and color of various birds she sees, as well as wondering where birds go in the winter when all the food is gone. The illustrations are pretty and compliment the text very well. I love the pages about how when a large group of birds fly away from a tree it looks like the tree yelled "surprise!" A cute book and a great starter for a conversation on the world outside for a young child.
