This book has an interesting way of giving a new perspective on crows. The book consists of a multitude of poems from different people and animals, [perspectives] all describing their thoughts and relationships with the crows around them. With both the human and animal perspectives established it is easier to understand the life of a crow. This book is a great example of how a single poem can tell a complete story as well as a collection of poems to create a bigger picture.
I liked the illustrations and some of the poems.
First book purchased for our future children.
