All day long, you’re on the go.

You don’t have time to watch a crow.

But we’re here . . . and here . . . and there.

We poke our beaks in everywhere.

Crows can be noisy. They can be nosy and bold, too, which some people find annoying. But if you are lucky enough to live in a place where crows roost, you know they can also be funny, ingenious, and beautiful.

Beautiful to look at and fun to read aloud, this book created by Sheila Keenan and Kevin Duggan will make imaginations soar as high as the crow flies.

One series of panels shows a crow in flight carrying, dropping, and recapturing a plastic straw, attesting to the birds’ startling capacity for play: “Garbage that you leave behind/ is just the game we had in mind.” Read­ers should look more closely at crows after they read Keenan and Dugg...
