Birds by Kevin Henkes and Laura Dronzek

I loved this book. Laura Dronzek’s illustrations are perfect for the text, things like this…

“If there are lots of birds in one tree and they  all fly away at the same time, it looks like the tree yelled,”


Sadly neither of my kids seemed to agree with me. Ivy (3 years)was completely uninterested (too simple?) I could only get her to read it with my once, then I thought Clara (10 months) might like the pictures but she was also unenthusiastic. I think my kids are broken.

Would I recommend it? I’d like to but with two thumbs down from the actual kids in the house I’m not sure I can!

    I’m with the kids. I had Ivy get this one so we could read together, and it’s lame. The only good part is the one mentioned above.
