Two little birds hatch and grow until one day, they see an amazing sight: hundreds of birds, all flying together in one direction. They decide to join in, and so begins an amazing and sometimes dangerous journey that they never could have imagined. Eventually they return home — and the cycle starts over again.

This simple story, nicely complemented by warm and colorful illustrations, subtly celebrates the wonder of migration. Two Little Birds is a perfect book for introducing young children to nature's small miracles.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* Two eggs lie in a nest until they hatch and two little birds emerge. Soon sporting yellow feathers, “The little birds did / what little birds do. / They fed, / they frolicked, / and they grew.” One night, a great flock of birds flies overhead. The two birds join them, flying far beyond familiar sights, through a thunderstorm, and across a sea. Though the two little birds lag behind, they keep flying southward until they reach their tropical destination. Eventually, they fly home, build nests, and have eggs of their own. An appended author’s note identifies the birds as orchard orioles migrating from the northeastern U.S. to the Yucatán Peninsula. Variations on the lines quoted above form a unifying refrain throughout the lively, graceful text. Like the writing, the mixed-media collage artwork is strong, delicate, and precise. While there’s no sentimentality here, children will feel the fatigue of the droopy little bird flapping its aching wings to stay aloft over the sea. The vivid pictures vary from the mottled, rain-stitched clouds during the storm to the verdant, tranquil oasis across the sea. The succinct text is accessible to young children, making this a great picture book to remember when teachers request stories of migrating birds. Preschool-Grade 1. --Carolyn Phelan
