Discover birds who survive winter against all odds in award-winning creators Kirsten Hall and Jenni Desmond’s poetic, gorgeously illustrated picture book.
Snowflakes whirling, snow-flocks swirling, streaks of white twirl through the night . . .
You’ve heard of birds who migrate to warmer climates in the wintertime—but what about those who persevere through snowy weather and freezing temperatures?
With elegant verse and striking illustrations, Snow Birds salutes the brave and resourceful birds who adapt to survive the coldest months.
“A soulful, vivid look at the hidden world of winter birds.” —New York City Audubon
“Hall’s skillful poetry reads aloud well, making this a solid candidate for small-group storytime even where the birds—or even the snow—aren’t familiar.” —Kirkus Reviews
