When the Virtual Book Club did Kevin Henkes books I absolutely fell in love with all of them, but Birds stuck out most. First of all, Royal just adored the book. And I loved it, too!
Whenever we spot it at the library we pick it up and keep it for a few weeks. I think it’s time to just buy the book!
We just got it out again though, and I wanted to do a few crafts with Royal. On one page it mentions that birds can be yellow, blue, brown, red, or even green, so I wanted to make a tree with all the different colors of birds.
In another part of the book it says that sometimes when a bunch of birds are sitting in a tree and then fly away it’s like the tree is saying Surprise!! We all think that part is pretty funny. Royal and I recreated it with some black construction paper. We started by tearing it all up together.
We had a lot of fun with this book and I’m so glad we have it for a few more weeks. I’m sure I’ll be buying it pretty soon anyway!
