  1. 3.75 starsI like the poetry and I could hear the sound of the Thrushbut then I got confused There are two boys in the story I guess one speaks Spanish It is hard to tell as the two pictures look the same.Now what does a Thrush down like Wood Thrush Song


  2. A wood thrush bird migrates and keeps coming back A boy loves to listen to it sing its song He keeps protecting the trees that it lives in This book has parts of it in Spanish and the pictures are painted.


  3. I hope this one works for storytime because I really like it It has some Spanish language dialogue, if you re looking to incorporate it into your storytime or just general reading to your own child.



  4. I didn t care for the illustrations and the text was just OK I liked the concept of describing the summer and winter habitats of the thrush, but I didn t like how it was done.
