Kevin Henkes is a fantastic illustrator. He won the Caldecott Award for illustration in 2005 for Kitten's First Full Moon. But he wrote the words in his latest picture book and the illustrations were created by Laura Dronzek. She did a great job. The color and movement found in her pictures are the perfect accompaniment to Mr. Henkes' story of a girl who admires birds from her window and discovers something that she has in common with them. Check out this book, look out your window, and draw a picture of the birds that you see.
