What's Spit & Sticks About

Publisher Summary

Succinct and factual text follows chimney swifts as they arrive on a Texas farm, build their nest, lay eggs, ready for fledglings to take flight, and eventually prepare to migrate back to South America. In a parallel, wordless story, a mom, dad, and young girl on the farm watch the chimney swifts throughout the summer and fall, even as they build a new crib and ready for the new baby they’re expecting. As they enjoy their baby’s first months, they also celebrate the fledglings’ first flight and bid the birds good-bye until next year.

Nicole Gsell’s soft illustrations follow the tales of both families—bird and human—from each unique perspective.

A beautiful addition to bird lovers’ collections, as well as classrooms and libraries.
