This delightful, yet informative, book by Kevin Henkes looks at the types of birds in our lives. It is a very simple book, great for baby story times, but is also one the older kids will enjoy. The book covers the different colors of birds, how they resemble a lone leaf on an empty tree, or how some birds are so black that you can’t see their eyes. I liked the page about all the birds sitting on the telephone wire, not moving, until the narrator looked away for just one second and they all flew away.
