Product Details


If Neal Layton were a bird, he’d be part of that genus that includes John Burningham and Quentin Blake, because it is with similar delight and abandon that he warbles and flits about his own branches.
—The New York Times Book Review

This sweet and simple story (only 38 words) conveys an important and powerful message…Suitable for independent reading, this title is also ideal for group sharing and a perfect choice for Earth Day presentations. Large and small collections should make room on their shelves for this lovely offering.
—School Library Journal (starred review)

With just a few words in large type on each double-page spread, the spare text leaves plenty of room for kids to observe, imagine, and talk about what’s happening in each scene. This appealing picture book is just right for reading aloud.
—Booklist Online

A feather-light tribute to finding common ground—or make that common air space.
—Kirkus Reviews

A delightful story perfectly complemented with fun, expressive illustrations, this seemingly simple story offers reflective thought on empathy and learning to live harmoniously with all living things.
—Reading Eagle (from Kendal Rautzhan’s "Books to Borrow")

Layton’s fable offers a simple, thought-provoking message on humans sharing the natural environment with other species.
