Listening to a singing bird outside her window, a young girl remarks on what she knows, and doesn’t know, about birds. They come in all sizes and colors, but where do they go when away from their nests in a storm? Gorgeous acrylic paintings of brightly colored birds illustrate sensitive, and scientific, avian observations. Full of wonder, the girl may not be able to fly like a bird, but she can sing like one. With Henkes’s perfect prose and Dronzek’s marvelous hues, Birds soars—-it is an intimate and exhilarating look at a child’s backyard and beyond.
