New release from author: Annemarie Riley Guertin
Foreward Reviews gave this book a starred review- Unable to fly south for the winter, a lone redbird seeks shelter in the surrounding woods, but not every tree is a gracious host. In this folk tale, fairy tale, and just-so story all in one, deep pine greens, bright red feathers, and a medley of golden leaves make each tree identifiable. The fir, juniper, and blue spruce each volunteer to keep the redbird safe as autumn turns to winter, earning the Frost Queen's eternal favor.
Kirkus Review says: The telling adheres closely to the cadences and conventions of most classic folktales. Bold colors and the striking contrast of the red bird within a green tree are on full display, giving each page a true jolt of visual pop.
Why Evergreens Keep Their Leaves is a timeless classic.
