Another glorious book by James Prosek. Bird, Butterfly, Eel is an inspiring story of the change of seasons and the journey animals must take as the weather changes. Between the masterful watercolor illustrations and lilting text, I floated my way from beginning to end without even realizing that I was learning some very interesting facts. James’ intentions of introducing young readers to the basic elements of bird, fish, and insect migration, are delivered in a beautifully clear manner that will undoubtedly appeal to its audience — it reads like a well-done documentary. Satisfaction guaranteed for all nature and animal lovers.
