Birds by Kevin Henkes, illustrated by Laura Dronzek (Greenwillow Books, 2009)
Hurray for the birds! Kevin Henkes brings young children another delightful book - this one with illustrations by Laura Dronzek. The soft, acrylic paintings of birds throughout the story match the wonder and fascination of the little girl in the story. Have you ever noticed how birds come in different colors and sizes? Birds are everywhere - can you spot their colors, their patterns and their music outside? This one is a lovely selection for young birdwatchers.
