My Happy Year by E.Bluebird




With humor and charm, a bluebird narrates her first year of life--adventures, joys, and scary times too--in this companion book to My Awesome Summer by P. Mantis.

"May 1. Today is my birthday." So begins the wondrous first year of E. Bluebird. Readers are treated to the intimate details of her life such as "May 8: Eating all these bugs makes me poop. Mom takes my poop sack out of the nest. Good thing." And "May 12: My brothers and sisters are getting ready to leave the nest. I like it here. It's safe." On May 18: "Where's my family? I'm getting hungry. Okay. This is it! I jump! I flap! I'm flying!" She eventually migrates south, and when she returns north, she finds a mate and has a family of her own. What a happy year! The art is both beautiful and kid-friendly and has been vetted for accuracy by two experts. A companion book, My Awesome Summer by P. Mantis, is an American Association for the Advancement of Science/Subaru Science Books & Film Finalist. In a rave review, The New York Times called it "[a] celebration of nature's strangeness and wild wonders."
