Sweep Up the Sun

By Helen Frost

“A picture-book poem calling for adventure. . . . All-around gorgeous.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Baby robins, open-beaked in their nest. Mallards winging to a new clime. Whether chickadees or cardinals, sparrows or starlings, here are commonly seen birds in their natural settings, captured in photographs of rare beauty and grace. In perfect synchrony, a lyrical narrative evokes images of play and flight, perseverance and trust. At the end, readers will find profiles of the featured species. This stunning book is an ideal gift for bird lovers of all ages, graduates, or anyone embarking on an adventure.

  • A beautiful follow-up to the very well-received and critically acclaimed Step Gently Out.
  • A winning combination of thoughtful, inspiring poetry and truly stunning photographs.
  • With the theme of spreading one's wings and taking flight, this title makes for an inspiring read-aloud.
