Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Birds offer endless fascination for those of us patient or lucky enough to catch a glimpse. Fortunately, award-winning writer Jane Yolen and photographer Jason Stemple once again give readers the chance to closely observe a brand-new flock of these creatures in expertly rendered poetry and photographs. Each poem and picture combination beautifully and thoughtfully captures both bird and a moment of time. Brief facts about each bird, reviewed by an ornithologist, are included.

Review:

"The team behind A Mirror to Nature again pairs striking, full-color photographs of birds with spirited poems in a full range of styles and forms. A haiku for a kingfisher speaks tenderly to the quirky, diminutive bird ('Hey, girl, fish lover,/ Sitting on the dead gray tree,/ Love the blue Mohawk'); another offering compares a marching group of oystercatchers to windup toys; and a poem for a 'solitary wood duck' admires the bird's nobility ('We surrender,/ we surrender,/ we surrender to your beauty'). Stemple's intimate photos capture a great horned owl's gaze, a chickadee's downy plumage, and sandpipers silhouetted against a sunrise, while Yolen's solidly constructed verses show equal affection. Ages 9 — 11. (Apr.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
