9780761374626: Marsh Morning

During the day, a marsh comes alive with the sounds of birds. As dawn appears, a single heron stands motionless offshore, and then the blackbird begins the first melody. Soon the dawn chorus swells as the warblers and sparrows and wrens chime in. The marsh begins to rock as the woodpeckers drum out the beat and other species pick up the rhythm. Just before dusk, the birds gradually become quiet--but the serenade is not over... Although the story is a fantasy, each of the different species of birds has been carefully portrayed, and described by the author in an Afterword. The musical terms are defined in a glossary. Young naturalists who are fond of birds as well as youngsters who enjoy music will have a wonderful time as part of the marsh's daytime audience.

About the Author:

Marianne Berkes is the author of ten picture books, all inspired by her love of nature. A former teacher, librarian and children's theater director, Marianne brings her experiences to good use, as she combines fact and fiction. Berkes is a favorite presenter at schools, conferences, and literary festivals. She lives in Hobe Sound, Florida, with her husband, Roger.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3-Morning comes to the marsh with wildlife awakening amid watercolor mist and movement in grays, browns, greens, and black, re-creating this unique ecosystem. Rabbit stands in mid motion, heron is knee-deep in water, and red-winged blackbird "starts his melody." Four lines of rhyme introduce the language of sparrow and wren's vocalization, and crane and woodpecker's syncopation, in a chorus or solo of movement and song. This title is a perfect companion to the author's Marsh Music (Millbrook, 2000), which beautifully graces many picture-book collections, but be warned that Marsh Morning is not, as the CIP designates it, nonfiction. Sylvia Johnson's Songbirds: The Language of Song (Carolrhoda, 2001) could fill that need. A glossary of musical terms with pronunciation guides and a list of the birds in order of appearance, including physical and vocal descriptions, end a delightful offering. This title will engage children as they enjoy the day that comes to an end with a night melody, a "-laughing loon./Ha-oo-oo he sings as he takes flight. Where is the music of the night?" Excellent.
