Praise for Every Day Birds

"[VanDerwater has] chosen birds preschoolers are likely to notice, birds they'll encounter outside their windows and in their yards--chickadees, cardinals, and sparrows--and birds they might see on trips to parks and beaches--hawks, herons, gulls.... Metrano's bold cut-paper illustrations show identifiable birds in appropriate poses against a clean, solid-color background, with just a hint of their likely habitat.... Beginning birding at its best, this pleasing presentation is ideal for families with preschoolers but would work well for storytime, too." -- Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Forest Has a Song by Amy Ludwig VanDerwater and illustrated by Robbin Gourley:

"Dip into this appealing collection for an introduction to early nature studies or poetry writing, or for generating some well-deserved enthusiasm for a stroll in the great outdoors." -- Booklist

"Children will understand this poetry as the quiet beauty of the forest is given a voice." -- Children's Literature

"Readers, too, may want to return to these explorations over and over." -- Kirkus Reviews

"The verses are approachable for readers and vivid for readaloud listeners, so this is a title with a broad spread of possible use. Even if there's no nearby forest, just have kids close their eyes, listen to the poetry, and imagine that there is." -- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
