A nonfiction story about the life of a robin and its family. This book would be a great tie-in for an older classroom science curriculum. Yet, the younger reader can enjoy as much. This is a book that can grow with your child: first as a read-to-book, then to read solo (or with a bit of help) and finally the tie-in to science. The reader needs to pay close attention to where (and what) color is used. The reason for the color used might not be clear at first, but they make the entire book quite poetic to look at. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Want a fun story about having a knack with nature; a young girl who is a little anxious in the "real world" and who finally sees how once she was a wallflower but now she is a wildflower? Then this is the book for you! Poppy loves nature and can be found carrying on conversations with her wildlife friends. But she is also terribly uncomfortable with people. At parties she turns into flowers, landscapes, trees; any other background she can find to hide in. It is not until a special birthday party and a special bug friend help Poppy come out of her shell. Then not only her family but she sees how much of a wildflower she is, Poppy does, too. Must see funny, bright sweet illustrations. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

This starkly beautiful tale reminds us of the intrinsic relationship between humanity and the natural world. More of a fable than a story, the ink and watercolor illustrations imbue it with equal eloquence. ~ Reviewed by Jessica Wood
