Horn Book Review

This science picture book, featuring spectacular photographs and spare, precise text, focuses on the migrating group of tiny birds called warblers. The poetic text mirrors the birds' flight patterns: very short rhyming lines ("They search. Stalk. / Wag. Walk") are contained within the one long poem. Readers can closely observe bird activity in the photographs, and the pages are skillfully laid out to guide the eye. Websites. (c) Copyright 2018.
