"If birds made marks with their tail feathers when they flew, think what the sky would look like...
Sometimes, in winter, a bird in a tree looks like one red leaf left over.
If there are lots of birds in one tree and they all fly away at the same time, it looks like the tree yelled, SURPRISE!"
- BIRDS by Kevin Henkes
Madison author, Henkes, collaborates with illustrator and mother of his children, Laura Dronzek, on this recently-published book that takes an interesting look at our fine feathered friends.
We may not be able to fly like most birds, but read this book to find out what we do share in common with BIRDS!
Join us this May as we read this and other books about birds...
