Full disclaimer- I am an unabashed fan of Helen Frost, and this latest is as visually breathtaking as her poetic text. Also, I admit to being an amateur expert on midwestern birds (retired wildlife rehabilitator) and the subject matter guarantees my interest.
In this case, my high expectations were exceeded. The purity and poetry of the minimalist text results in a page-turning book despite the magnetic draw of each remarkable photograph.
If you never read another Frost book (shame on you!) make it this one. Then share it with readers of every age, including older youth and adults as mentor text for the potential of poetry to equal the spectacle of nature's beauty.
