“An enchanting portrayal of one girl’s delight in a creature and the many ways they can engage and inspire.” – ALA Booklist
Ivy spends her day with the birds–sipping nectar and splashing in the pond in this joyfully written celebration of birds and imaginative play from an award-winning author-and-illustrator team.
Ivy Bird is a celebration of the natural world and the joy found in imaginative play. Perfect for reading aloud, this book will delight children with its search-and-find elements, bright illustrations, and exuberant story. A nonfiction element, two pages bursting with colorful bird illustrations, encourages readers to seek out birds in their own neighborhoods. Printed on FSC-certified paper with vegetable-based inks.
Fun illustrations and playful tale. I really enjoyed the information at the end about the featured birds.
I found this book utterly charming—it sings of summer and long days outside soaking up the sun and celebrating nature and the illustrations feel fresh.

To my darling Ella, too soon ready to leave the nest.
To Ivy, thank you for teaching me again how to talk to birds.
