Staff Reviews

What happens to the birds that don’t fly south for the winter? Snow Birds introduces us to these resilient birds through verse bursting with sound and soft, striking illustrations. This book could be a delight for any season, but is especially a treasure for the winter months, revealing how life and beauty can endure through the harshest conditions.

— Claire, Wild Rumpus


Discover birds who survive winter against all odds in this poetic, gorgeously illustrated picture book
Snowflakes whirling, snow-flocks swirling, streaks of white twirl through the night . . .
You’ve heard of birds who migrate to warmer climates in the wintertime—but what about those who persevere through snowy weather and freezing temperatures? With elegant verse and striking illustrations, Snow Birds salutes the brave and resourceful birds who adapt to survive the coldest months.

Praise For…

"A soulful, vivid look at the hidden world of winter birds.”
— New York City Audobon

"Hall’s skillful poetry reads aloud well, making this a solid candidate for small-group storytime even where the birds—or even the snow—aren’t familiar."
— Kirkus Reviews

"Gentle enough for bedtime wind-down, this title invites repeat reading and perhaps a virtual trip online to listen to bird calls."
— Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Hall’s effervescent poems beg to be read aloud."
— Booklist
