Reviews

Lieder's breathtaking photography carries the book's message of growth. Frost's poem encourages youngsters to leave the nest, "trusting" the sky to "hold you / as you learn to fly." ... All-around gorgeous; Frost and Lieder again showcase the splendor of nature through the happy marriage of literal and figurative images.
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Frost and Lieder follow Step Gently Out with another winning combination of sensitive verse and striking photography, this time taking an inspirational approach that makes the book equally well-suited for graduation gift-giving and moments of everyday encouragement.
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

With a gentle text and dramatic visuals, this book has much to offer beginning birders, science classes, and storytimes for very young listeners.
--School Library Journal

For bird lovers of all ages, this small book offers a glimpse of feathered friends not otherwise often seen so close-up.
--Booklist

A superb intersection of science, literature, and visual arts, this book can be used to initiate studies of flight, enthuse bird watchers, or inspire creative classroom projects.
