I love going to the beach every summer and watching the shorebirds as they poke along the edge. This book tells of the incredible journey made by the red knot, a species of shorebird, that travels 20,000 miles each year, from the Arctic tundra for its nesting site, to the southern tip of South America, and back again. More information about this amazing bird is at the back. Nancy Willis tells an interesting story and shows most of the action in her beautiful illustrations.

I think red knot flies faster than I can drive....
