Editorial Reviews

Review

“It's always a pleasure to find a book that's not just good--it's about doing good …This book features her charming illustrations, captioned with snippets of information about particular species…This makes for a terrific package that should inspire children in lots of ways: to use their talents, to help their communities, and to make a difference in the world.” --Booklist (STARRED REVIEW)
 
“Her love of birds and drawing gives the book touching beauty and lyricism. The child's straightforward voice is engaging, evocative, and insightful, and her bird-watching advice is spot-on...Budding naturalists, artists, and activists will be inspired ...” --School Library Journal
 
“…Casual, informative passages…upbeat… carefully observed and spirited; her vivacious attitude may inspire ecologically minded readers to get involved.” --Publishers Weekly
 


“A lot of artists paint from the heart. This one, though, paints from a broken one.”
- Steve Hartman, CBS Evening News


“What I love is you're inspiring little kids to find a way that they can help as well.”
- Kathie Lee Gifford, The Today Show

Oliva's talent and dedication to nature and "her" birds is very evident in her first book. Although the reading age is 9-12, this book is a must for many people. Both of my sons (ages 6 and 10) loved the pictures and text, but more importantly it led to discussions with me about what we see around us everyday and how we can do little and big things to better our world. In addition, I think school libraries, elementary classrooms, grandparents and any interested artist would enjoy Olivia's book. The information is accessible, inspirational and informative - and a purchase supports Audubon and their good works. Overall, a must have!!

Impressive! Everything about Olivia's book and fundraiser shows a lot of heart. From her colorful, accurate and detailed sketches, to the words on the page to her amazing resourcefulness in waging a campaign to help out after the Gulf Coast disaster, this eleven-year old shows that impossible is not a word in her vocabulary and it doesn't have to be in ours. This book is totally appropriate for nature loving kiddos ages 9-12, especially bird lovers. Olivia provides facts about the birds and their plight (if endangered) making this an eco-conscious book. She also suggests practical, doable ways kids can help out. A great book to purchase knowing that a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Audubon's Gulf Coast clean up efforts. - Biblio Reads Children's Book Review

Olivia's message to the world is that birds are amazing creatures and we should be doing our utmost to protect them. This charming book can be read as a picture book, a guide book or a how-to manual for saving the environment. It's written by an 11 year old who wants to share her fascination with wildlife as well as her beautiful drawings. A must for every elementary schoolroom and all kids 5-12.

My granddaughter is quite interested in wild birds at this time and she also appreciates the fact that the book was illustrated by a child. She is encouraged to try her hand at drawing birds, too. So the book has become an inspiration!

Olivia is an inspiration. My daughter had to do a project on a kid who had made a difference in the world. Olivia drew and painted pictures of birds to raise money for saving wildlife affected by the Gulf oil spill in 2010. What an amazing girl. Lovely book.
