Birds come in all sizes, shapes, and colors. Birds are magic. Birds are everywhere. If you listen very carefully you will hear them, no matter where you live. And if you look very closely you will see them, no matter where you are.

Age: 2 Year-olds | Title: Birds  |  Author: Kevin Henkes  |  Publisher: Greenwillow Books

Birds come in all sizes, shapes, and colors. Birds are magic. Birds are everywhere. If you listen very carefully you will hear them, no matter where you live. And if you look very closely you will see them, no matter where you are.

There are many familiar images in this award winning book that toddlers will understand.  Some of the birds are very colorful and others are monotone, which adds interest to the drawings. The movement is outstanding, showing both the movement of the birds, and the changing of the clouds and the weather.  It is beautifully illustrated with just the right amount of text.
 
Children this age will enjoy pointing to the images on the page.  They will want to participate as you read to them.  This book is perfect for reinforcing objects in their world that they are familiar with such as birds, trees, and clouds.  It is also a great book for pointing out colors.  The colors have a richness that pops off the page.
 
I ask my granddaughter Francie to name each object and color she sees when we read this book, even though sometimes she needs help.  We spend a lot of time on each page.  It's always amazing to me how quickly she can absorb both the objects and colors and repeat them back to me.  I find this to be a soothing book, and it is especially great for cuddling.
