Birds, by Kevin Henkes and illustrated by Laura Dronzek (2009)
Picture Book, 32 pages
Birds encourages pre-readers to explore colors, shapes, sounds, and sizes of birds. It also nudges younger ones to use their imaginations, whether it’s to visualize the birds in the clouds or lines they would leave if their tail feathers left flight patterns. Dronzek creates clear and vivid illustrations that are big and draw the eye to the focal point of each page. With his use of personification, imagery, and sound, Henkes creates a story that begs little ones to think about the world around them and life outside their own, by relating to feathered friends of all shapes and sizes. This would be a perfect book to share with a large group at storytime!
