Publisher Summary

One autumn evening, Little Redbird settled down for one last sleep before flying south for winter. As she slept, a strong gust of wind shook her from her cozy nest . . .

. . . Little Redbird hurts her wing and misses her chance to fly south for the winter. As she searches for a new home amongst the trees, she begins to realize that not all trees are fit for the winter cold. As more and more trees refuse her shelter, too preoccupied with their preparations for the frost, Little Redbird fears the worst. That is, until she comes across a friendly bunch of evergreens.

In the spirit of Oscar Wilde’s The Happy Prince, Why Evergreens Keep Their Leavesis a timeless story of kindness and why the fir, spruce, and juniper trees are evergreen all winter long.
