What's Ivy Bird About

Publisher Summary

“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.
