I'm always surprised when Kevin Henkes writes a book, but doesn't illustrate it. I wonder why he chooses to do that? In this case, Laura Dronzek's illustrations are so similar to his newest styles (as in A Good Day) that I am further befuddled.
I enjoyed the simple clarity of color and line in this introductory book about birds. I can imagine using it to discuss fiction/nonfiction with my preschoolers or kindergarteners. They could dissect which statements are fact and which are fiction.
