Editorial Reviews

Review

"The engaging, digitally rendered avian characters stand out against the wintry landscape, and their many antics as they navigate their surroundings will sustain readers’ interest. They loop-the-loop through the falling snow, tightrope walk on branches, ski on twigs, and knock snow off fence posts. Children will readily join in the reading to supply each ending rhyme."

--School Library Journal, September 2011

"With spare verse and a quiet, winter landscape, Baker (LMNO Peas) presents an ode to uniqueness, particularly as it pertains to nature.... Baker’s digital artwork conveys a sense of painterly softness and warmth, and children should appreciate the gentle self-esteem boost that comes with the reassurance that they are one of a kind."

--Publishers Weekly, October 3, 2011

*"The poetry and pictures here express the idea of individuality with an irrepressible, childlike sense of joy. Accessible to very young children, the verse reads aloud beautifully, with just a phrase or two on each spread. Created with subdued colors and strong composition, the double-page digital illustrations create a powerful sense of place and season while offering details for young children to notice and talk about. Baker’s seamless combination of well-worded rhymes, evocative landscapes, and playful protagonists make this a standout title for reading aloud, especially in winter."

--Booklist, November 1, 2011, *STAR

"A cheerful celebration of individuality, with clever rhymes and engaging art sure to appeal to little ones."

--San Francisco Chronicle, December 25, 2011

"In a thoughtfully structured picture book, two little red birds explore a snowy landscape, while a rhyming text draws listeners into looking carefully at the pictures to find similarities and differences between things.... Baker includes many funny scenes, with the mischievous birds stockpiling snowballs as a fox walks warily by in one spread and fishing with berry-bait in another."

--The Horn Book Magazine, January/February 2012

“Spare, rhymed couplets, quiet and gentle, tell the story, while the digitally produced artwork, bright and cheerful, takes off winter's chill….This lovely testimony to how special and unique each of us is will enhance a preschooler's self-esteem.”

The Plain Dealer (Cleveland, OH), March 4, 2012

Format: Hardcover
My twin daughters received this book as a Christmas present and while it is a wonderful book in the abstract, it is simply outstanding for twins, especially identical twins. The pictures are gorgeous, with beautifully done winter landscapes and fun creatures populating every page. The message is where this book really shines though.

"Almost, almost, but not quite." The story of the two similar-looking birds as they explore their winter-y world is filled with educational fun. They 'meet' snowflakes, trees, and other denizens of their forest home. This is a perfect book for twins in that it highlights that even though they look so similar (especially useful for same-gender twins, though I suspect it is also a nice book for any pair, or more!) they have differences. It is a nice way to talk to your twins about their special similarity and also their defining individuality.

This is an excellent book to have as part of a library of books for your kids. I additionally (in particular) highly recommend it for any parents of twins!

Even though this book has few, simple words, the truths are profound. The pictures are adorable, and the more you look at them, the more you see! I bought this for my grandchildren (triplets who are 4 years old) when we were going to have "Snow" as our holiday theme. But, surprisingly, even their older brother who is nine, liked the book! Makes you think about how everyone and everything is unique!

Format: Hardcover
This book is about birds, birdhouses, and things not being alike. I think other kids would enjoy it because it's so cute. My favorite parts were the birds. This book is special because of the pictures of the cute birds.

I also like the story about things being alike and different.

Kids age 1 - 100 would like it and both boys and girls will like this book.

I'm giving this book 5 stars - I love it! It's the best book I've read today!

After reading the Booklist review of this title, I sent it to my 5 year old grandson who is an emergent reader. He just loves this book because he can read it by himself and the story is wonderful. He also commented on the pictures, so the illustrator deserves a big thumbs up.

I enjoyed reading this before I mailed it to my neice--I think she will enjoy it too. And as usual Amazon sent it in plenty of time to preview.

Format: Hardcover
This board book featuring two little red birds exploring their winter environment is not only the perfect book for the cold months but it stresses the uniqueness of various things the two birds encounter in their winter landscape. The art is excellent and toddlers should enjoy flipping the pages and looking at the pictures. I'm sending this one on to my granddaughter. I think she'll love it!
