Amazon.com description: Should three young children try to rescue a helpless bird that’s too young to fly or feed itself? This is the true story of a successful attempt by loving and dedicated girls. New laws have been enacted since then that make it illegal in many areas for people to rehabilitate wild creatures themselves. Most attempts do not end as fortunately and often the animal was not truly abandoned in the first place. The parent was often nearby, watching and waiting for humans to leave the scene, and would then successfully retrieve and care for the animal. Now there are rehab shelters for injured/abandoned animals in many locations. This book helps children think about the responsibilities and issues involved while fostering a love and respect for wild creatures and especially of the Cedar Waxwing bird..
Review: Lavish full-spread watercolors… bristle with energy even as they suggest the restlessness youngsters may experience in the deep of night, wide awake and alone. Publisher’s Weekly Pinkney’s watercolors are lusciously tactile, the monumental, somnolent bear wedged into generous double spreads while his ever-alert friend springs from clover to stream and almost off the page on a marvelous final foldout spread. Delectable. Kirkus Reviews Graceful in both picture and word, this creates a mood that transcends the intricacies of the text. Booklist
