Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Starred Review. PreSchool-Grade 3 Illustrations and text work as one as a boy spies a bird and begins to ask questions. Little black crow,/where do you go?/Where do you go/in the cold white snow?/Where do you go? The initially fact-based inquiries progress from solid to more ethereal. Little black crow/in the white snow,/in the blue sky,/in the brown below,/do you ever wonder/about stars you see?/Might you ever wonder/about someone.../...like me? Impressionistic watercolor landscapes perfectly set the mood and style for these awe-filled inquiries of a curious child. Spare brushstrokes leave large areas of white, and, much like the unanswered inquiries, encourage readers to suggest answers and ask more questions the minimalist paintings create an opportunity to imagine more. Enjoy this beautiful book with a group or share it quietly with a single child. Carolyn Janssen, Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, OH

From Booklist

As a young boy observes a bird fly through skies that alternate from stormy to sunny, cold to warm, he wonders, Little black crow, where do you go? This query is followed by more rhetorical statements that get right to the heart of children's own questions about family, friends, love, fear, mistakes, and, above all, self-worth. Raschka uses thick, black, ink lines in abstract depictions of the boy, who appears only at the beginning, middle, and end of the book, and of the seemingly carefree bird with an oversize beak that is featured on each of the double-page spreads, along with a few short lines of gentle, rhyming text. The lonely, rural, outdoor settings are washed across wide, white pages in watercolors of browns, blues, pinks, and yellows. With its satisfying closure, this quiet, tender book will appeal to contemplative young kids who wonder about their place in the world and whether other creatures, crow and child alike, share similar, powerful feelings. Grades K-2. --Andrew Medlar

Format: Hardcover
This adorable book is so charming! It's illustrations are simple, yet eyecatching. The story is so sweet....a little boy wonders if the crow he is observing wonders about him, too! The story is easy to read for youngsters, there is some repetition as well, so that helps with reading skills, also.

This book is a delight. It's plain and simple and full of charm!

My 2 year old loves this book, and I love reading it. The ink and watercolor illustrations are beautiful and unique. The questions asked are at once simple and thoughtful! The tone of the story is soothing. I love that my daughter says hello to the little black crows she sees now, and I hope she asks such wonderful questions of nature when she gets older.

Perfect book for a preschooler with beautiful illustrations and simple sweet rhyme. Great way to teach little ones about crows that are common neighbors who we usually try to ignore.Sweet book.

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By J.Prather TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on August 27, 2010
Format: Hardcover
Little Black Crow brings to mind lazy days of summer when all you had to do was lay around and think about things like if crows had moms and dads, or if crows were afraid of thunder like you were. I remember as a kid looking out our window at the birds in the cold and snow of winter and wondering how they stayed warm with just those feathers? This book perfectly captures that innocent child-like curiosity and turns it to the essential question; are you at all like me? This is a wonderful choice to share with a group or one on one. The text is spare and beautifully written in rhymes that have a really nice flow.

I don't think I've ever seen a picture book where the text and illustrations mesh together so well. The boy's whimsical musings are paired perfectly with Raschka's trademark impressionistic style. He seems to magically conjure the crow out of just a few dark strokes of the brush, and sets the questioning mood of the story just perfectly. It all comes together in a complete package that is not to be missed. Recommended.
