#blogbookaday: Warbler Wave

21 Jun

Warbler Wave.jpgSummary:  “Discover the magic—and the science—behind the migration of warblers with this stunning photographic picture book from the award-winning author and photographer of Raindrops Roll, Best in Snow, and Full of Fall.

The migrating warblers have arrived, to feed and preen, to refuel and rest before continuing on their amazing journey of thousands of miles. This photographic picture book captures in lush detail the story of these tiny, colorful, and diverse birds. April Pulley Sayre’s vibrant photography has been called “striking” and “wonderful in every way” by Kirkus Reviews, and Warbler Wave is just that. ” (Taken from Goodreads)

Review: Learn about the migrating warblers as they journey thousands of miles in this photographic poem of nature. I really enjoyed learning about the warblers in this accessible story filled with facts about these tiny little birds.

Personal Reaction: April Pulley Sayre has done some other nature-inspired poetry and photographic picture books including Raindrops Roll and Best In Snow and she does an amazing job with this format. You can tell that she spends a long time choosing just the right words to describe these determined birds. I also enjoyed that April added extensive back matter information to learn more about these amazing birds, plus adding some resources for accessing more information.

#blogbookaday (1)This is a new idea I’m trying on my blog this year that was inspired by @donalynbooks and @heisereads – to provide a brief review of a picture book every day of 2018. You’ll get a brief summary of the story, a review of the content, illustrations and theme, my personal reaction to the book and all the pertinent publication information! Enjoy!
