About the Book

"A poetic meditation on hope, perseverance, and courage, imagined through the flight of birds"--

Book Synopsis

Intricately detailed birds seemingly fly off the pages of this poetic and encouraging picture book about hope and resilience. It's the perfect gift for birdwatchers, graduates, or anyone seeking motivation.

Catch the current of a bird's wing. Dance with hope into open skies.

From avid birder and acclaimed wildlife illustrator Rebekah Lowell comes a soaring message of encouragement.

Readers will find inspiration in a Yellow Warbler greeting a sunrise, a flock of Canada Geese supporting each other by sharing the weight of the wind, a Red-Tailed Hawk trusting its own wings, and a plucky Northern Saw-Whet Owl braving a chilly night.

Ending on the optimistic note of a new day, this book is a parable about enduring life's setbacks, as well as a glorious celebration of the outdoors.

An afterword is included, with factual information about the ten birds featured in the book.

Review Quotes

This picture book is really about more than birds; it's an exhortation to partake in the joys that life has to offer, even through its inevitable storms--if you dare to spread your wings and fly.--Brian Lies, Caldecott Honor author-illustrator of The Rough Patch

It's hard to tell which I love more: the poetic meditation on moving forward into each new day with joy, confidence, and curiosity, or lingering in each page with the gorgeously rendered birds. I guess, I'll just have to read it again. And again. And again.--Heidi E.Y. Stemple, author of Counting Birds and Whose Nest Is Best?

Beautifully illustrated birds fly off the page and straight into your heart, each with a unique message of hope, inspiration, courage, and resilience.--Liz Clayton Fuller, American Birding Association Artist of the Year, 2023
