Song of the Redwing gives children a birds-eye view of life in a marsh, from sunrise to sunrise.
Through the eyes of the lively Red-winged Blackbird, children explore a very real, yet dreamlike, landscape that teems with texture, color, and light. Here in the marsh, where bog meets sky, readers encounter the varied creatures that thrive on the land, in the air, and in the water of this rich and diverse environment.
So, slip on your rubber boots, and let's visit the marsh!
