★ "An impressive use of rhythm, rhyme, onomatopoeia, and word imagery endows this science-based book with a strong literary component . . . Recommended as a lyrical read-aloud and an informational text." - School Library Journal In this lyrical STEM gem, nests full of baby birds hatch, grow feathers, learn to fly, and then finally follow the autumn winds south along the majestic flyway for their first big migration. Rhyming, poetic text and detailed, nostalgic illustrations make for an enthralling read-aloud, carrying readers along on the birds' sensory journey of sights and sounds. Illustrated endnotes provide factual information about bird migration, the four flyways of North America, the species of birds found in the book and sources for further reading.
