Summary
"In captivating, lyrical verse, award-winning children's author Susan Vande Griek explores the fascinating movements of twelve birds. Hawks kettle, riding warm air currents like bubbles rising in a pot of boiling water. Puffins wheel, circling over the sea and island colonies. And eagles cartwheel, locking talons high in the air and then tumbling toward earth. Alongside each poem is an informational sidebar explaining why the bird moves in its own special way. Artwork by Mark Hoffmann captures the birds' lively movements. The result is a delightful celebration of these magnificent creatures."--
