A few notes of birdsong create the perfect prelude to this heartwarming story, beautifully narrated by Katie Schorr and George Guidall. In the midst of birdcalls, fluttering wings, and other environmental sounds, a girl remembers her grandfather’s passion for birds and for sharing that joy with his grandchildren. The older man’s relationship with her family—particularly his special connection with her quiet little brother—inspires poignant moments of caring for and respecting the natural world. Schorr’s delivery of the story’s youthful voices is gently animated and perfectly complemented by Guidall’s engaging warmth as the grandfather. A lovely musical score enhances their performance, and silent pauses for page-turns allow ample time for admiring the accompanying picture book’s evocative illustrations.
