    1. Beautiful pictures illustrate the life of 2 little birds from hatching to, first migration and back and starting a family.Birds were a big new topic with day cares last year, so hopefully this will get a lot of use.

    2. Oh, I really liked this one. The illustrations are lovely and the text is perfect for tiny humans. Adults, check out the author's note in the back! It's cute.

    3. Migration/life cycle story for two young birds. I really liked the illustrations. The text on the last page is ambiguous, but the picture should clear up that they are starting two new things, not one.

    4. Loosely based on the actual migration of orchard orioles who fly each year back and forth from the northeastern part of the United States to Central America, this picture book follow the maiden flight of two birds. The lovely mixed media collage illustrations capture some of the dangers and wonders along their long flight. They face stormy winds and long distances, and need each other's encouragement along the way. As I read this book, I found myself wondering about what it takes to begin that r [...]

    6. Two little birds are hatched. They do what all little birds do. They eventually migrate to another place far, far away. Then they return home to do what all little birds do They snuggle and start something new. When I first read it, I did a double take at the end. I thought they had the two siblings coupling in the end. I seriously had to go back and find a good picture of them to compare to determine that they did indeed have different partners. Good for toddler storytimes.

    7. 4 stars for illustrations. 2.5 stars for story. Love the blues and purples in this story. The trees are great too, especially on the last page. This simple story about oriole migration is missing something for me. Perhaps if the weather was changing when the birds leave rather than just seeing a bunch of birds flying and deciding to join them or there was a reason for their return other than they decided home was a good place it might work better. Too simplified? Toddler

    8. This is the story of two little birds who fly south for the first time, and eventually find their way back home. The mixed media artwork is lovely, the text flows well, and the theme of not giving up is great to express to young children. The overall story, however, falls a bit flat, so it's best to save this books for more introspective storytime crowds. (February 2014)

    9. Cute little birds set off to join other birds on a journey full of peril and adventure until they settle back home. "Then these birds did what all birds do. They sang, they snuggledey started something new." From the Author: This story is loosely based on the annual migration of orchard orioles form the northeastern United States to Central America and back.

    10. Age: ToddlerBirds: Orchard OriolesIt's oftentimes hard to find a simple story for a young audience but this one hit the target. With the use of repetition, full yet simple illustrations, and 1-2 sentences per page, this would make a lovely read aloud to 2-year-olds.

    11. Lovely illustrations. Short, simple story that could have been fleshed out just a little after reading the author's note on her basing the story on the migration of the orchard oriole. Still worth a read and would make a nice bedtime story.

    12. This is a picture book, that conveys the migrations of orioles in story form. You don't really know that the birds are orioles until you read the end notes. I like the illustrations, the background has some texture, which I think is canvas.

    13. Two little birds grow and fly with the flock in the migration south. They become separated but persevere to their destination. Simple text and beautiful mixed media collage illustrations effectively tell this story of determination.

    14. This book is good for ECE readers because it is a simple story about a bird's life. It includes migration and procreation, but in a subtle manner. The illustrations are lovely and the text is very large, so it would be good for a read aloud setting.

    15. A story with rhyme that shares a simplified version of bird migration. It's interesting. It hints at being non-fiction, but it's a short little tale that can be shared with young learners.Reviewed from a library copy.

    16. Simple story with beautifully textured illustrations. Appropriate for the youngest early readers, with repetition, rhyming and only a few sentences per page, in big type. The story is inspired by bird migrations, but that's layered in lightly enough that it may be missed.

    17. Beautiful illustrations and simple text work wonderfully together in this story. An author's note explains that this is about oriole migration. This would work nicely in a classroom or story hour with a nonfiction book about the topic.

    18. This very pretty picture book will be a good one to talk to kids about the life cycle of the birds. Although the ending was a little weird the birds start the life cycle all over again but since they are siblings, um, huh?

    19. Orchard Orioles migrate from Central America to United States and back every year. The book captures the journey.

    20. I would not recommend this book for teaching kids about birds. Birds don't hatch out of their eggs and start flying. Nice pictures though.

    21. Attractively illustrated story about two young orioles. The story is supposed to be about migration but the text is a bit lacking in that approach.

    22. Short, sweet story about two little birds migrating to summer lands. The illustrations are very pretty and the story is a good one.

    23. A beautifully illustrated introduction to bird migration. I love the author's note at the end that encourages readers to "be curious".
