Reviews

"Bold colors and the striking contrast of the red bird within a green tree are on full display, giving each page a true jolt of visual pop."

- Kirkus Reviews

"Unable to fly south for the winter, a lone redbird seeks shelter in the surrounding woods, but not every tree is a gracious host. In this folk tale, fairy tale, and just-so story all in one, deep pine greens, bright red feathers, and a medley of golden leaves make each tree identifiable. The fir, juniper, and blue spruce each volunteer to keep the redbird safe as autum turns to winter, earning the Frost Queen's eternal favor. "

-Foreword Reviews (STARRED REVIEW)


"A lovely seasonal tale to promote kindness and empathy. . . . A quiet addition where seasonal tales and fables are in high demand."

-School Library Journal

"Annemarie Riley Guertin's text is a lively retelling of this holiday legend, while Helena Pรฉrez Garcia's illustrations burst off the page with beautifully vibrant colors and intriguing textures, design and depth...This story, which never grows old, is not only a visual delight but a well-told and timely tale of kindness."
