This simple, imaginative tale is a wonderful reminder that everyone's story matters. I am sure that I will use this to bring home a point or two either in a children's moment in church or at school, where not everyone is heard, but need to be.

Carol Bachofner I love this one too. My grandson (age 20) loves it and loves the short film even more. Have you seen that?

Linda Trott A Nest for Celeste: A Story About Art, Inspiration, and the Meaning of Home

I am sure that Henry Cole is human, I have met him, shaken his hand! After reading A Nest for Celeste, however, I wonder if Henry is not a changeling and a time traveler. His illustrations tell the story in a beautiful dance with the words he chooses.

Celeste is a mouse who discovers that there is a famous boarder in her house, John Audobon! He brings his assistant Joseph along and there are many adventures.

The descriptions of Celeste's first flight, I was in awe of this award winning author/illustrator.
