Why Do I Sing?: Animal Songs of the Pacific Northwest

Why Do I Sing?: Animal Songs of the Pacific Northwest Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Animals sing for all kinds of reasons and make all kinds of sounds in the process. The spotted owl sings at night, high above the treetops. A honeybee's buzzing is the sound of summer. And the low voices of fin whales broadcast in the blue Pacific Ocean. Why Do I Sing? possesses a beautiful cadence for reading aloud, as it invites us to consider all of the voices in nature.

Review:

"Gabriel’s handsome, atmospheric watercolor paintings on textured paper capture scenic panoramas or zoom in to render animals larger than life, from honeybee to meadowlark." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

Why Do I Sing?: Animal Songs of the Pacific Northwest is a beautiful introduction to many of the amazing animals that live in the Pacific Northwest....The stunning illustrations are captivating and the story flows as the words are read rhythmically. This lovely story is a wonderful way to teach children about the wonders of the natural world and the critters that live in their backyards. In the Know Mom
