Description

Crows are crafty birds. In this picture book about a particularly noisy and mischievous young crow, their intriguing behaviors are on full display. They can mimic sounds and use objects for tools, and they love to hide things. They also enjoy raising a ruckus. Follow along as Crow leaves his home nest and his large extended family and flies to the nearby farm, looking for fun and trouble. He enjoys pestering the songbirds, stealing food from Cat, and taunting Dog. But he soon tires of his usual hijinks, and he sets out to find more exciting adventures. What will happen when he runs into DANGEROUS trouble?

This engaging work of informational fiction is a dynamic read-aloud with colorful artwork by the celebrated illustrator Julie Paschkis. The book includes a page of facts about crows and a list of resources for learning more about these fascinating birds.
