As the Crow Flies (2012)
As the Crow Flies, invites children into the fascinating and little known world of a remarkably intelligent bird. While not particularly popular, crows have shown an incredible ability to adapt and survive in even the most urban environments. Whether “finag[ling] a big piece of the pigeons’ bagel,” playing with the “garbage that you leave behind” or disappearing into the blackness of night, Keenan and Duggan reveal crows to be both observant and creative.
This is an excellent story for encouraging children to notice and learn about the world around them. It provides just enough information to spark the imagination and stir up questions. After reading it, I was inspired to do a little crow research myself and was quite surprised by what I found. I hope that you are too.
