Munchkin Monday #5: Song for Papa Crow

A quick look at the new books I have read with Boy Child and Girl Child

Little Crow loves to sing, and Papa Crow loves his song. But when Little Crow shares his crow songs with the other birds at the big old tree, they laugh and scatter. Maybe the Amazing Mockingbird can teach him to sing songs with the finches, flycatchers, and cardinals and help him make some friends. 

But Little Crow should be careful what he wishes for...

Using Mockingbird's tip, Little Crow quickly becomes the most popular bird on the block. But, in a moment of danger, he learns that singing someone else's song can have terrible consequences and that his own voice and his father's love is of the greatest value.

Paired with colorful collage illustrations, this inspirational story is complemented by fun facts about North American birds and their sounds.

I thought this book had a lot of potential, but the kids didn't seem to like it.

They enjoyed the sounds of different birds, but they got bored halfway through.  I powered on, even though I had lost my audience.  Even The Husband was distracted.

The illustrations are beautiful, the moral of the story is perfect, and it was fun to make the bird calls.
 It's really too bad the kids weren't interested.

 I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
