Here is a house, dear robin.
The floor and walls are strong.
It's safe from wind
and snug from rain
and yours for just a song.

Birds of all kinds abound in this sprightly collection of feathery friends

How does a pelican say hello, a dipper swim, or a plover find a meal in a crocodile's mouth? Where does a cygnet go when it is frightened? These are some of the many questions explored in Eileen Spinelli's lyrical poems and Lisa McCue's charming pictures.
Whether children are studying birds in the classroom or are just curious about bird antics and behavior, this playful collection makes an ideal choice for all.
