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."Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Kevin HenkesPublisher: Greenwillow BooksPublished: 02/17/2009ISBN: 9780061363047Pages: 32Weight: 0.94lbsSize: 11.54h x 9.56w x 0.47dAward: Great Lakes Book Awards - FinalistAward: Capitol Choices: Noteworthy Books for Children and Teens - RecommendedAward: Ladybug Picture Book Award - NomineeAward: Beehive Awards - NomineeAward: Buckaroo Book Award - NomineeAward: Texas 2x2 Reading List - RecommendedAward: Maryland Blue Crab Young Reader Award - Honor BookAward: Missouri Building Block Picture Book Award - NomineeReview Citations: Publishers Weekly 12/15/2008 pg. 52Booklist 01/01/2009 pg. 76Kirkus Review - Children 01/15/2009School Library Journal 02/01/2009 pg. 76Horn Book Magazine 03/01/2009 pg. 182Bulletin of Ctr for Child Bks 04/01/2009New York Times Book Review 05/10/2009 pg. 17SLJ's Best Books 12/01/2009 pg. 33Booklist Ed Choice Youth 01/01/2010 pg. 14ALA Notable Children's Books 03/01/2010 pg. 24Hornbook Guide to Children 07/01/2009 - Outstanding, Noteworthy In StyleAccelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 128270 / BirdsReading Level: 2.1 / Interest Level: Lower Grade / Point Value: 0.5
