Reviewed by Bob Walch
avid Elliott combines witty, short poems with Becca Stadtlander's gorgeous illustration in this picture book that any child interested in birds will like. From a tiny hummingbird to the Andean condor, the eclectic collection of birds pictured here provide a catalog of our avian friends.
f the Japanese Crane the author writes:
What music do they hear
That makes them flutter so?
It's early spring;
the cranes are dancing,
dancing in the snow.
o, if birds are high on your toddler's list of things that really fascinate him/her, then this book should be on your must purchase list.
