“Some days are different,” the book tells us, and the man finds one small black bird still in the truck. He tries to get the little bird to fly away with the others.
The illustrations by Albertine are simply drawn and brilliantly colored. They are a joy to look at.
The text is sparse, perhaps less than 50 words in the entire book. “There are no greater treasures than the little things,” it says.
This book is a gem for small children, who will love the pictures and the charming story. Adults will enjoy reading it to them.
