Each bird gives voice to its own song in a luminous book celebrating the turning of a new day.
Chee chee, says the Wren.
Ta-tee-tee, sings the Lark.
Tink-tink, calls the Finch.
Goodbye to the dark.
With the chirp of a sparrow and the warble of a thrush, night turns to morning against a vivid, brightening sky. One by one, each bird wakes up and issues its call, with songs rising into a crescendo until a little bluebird calls for a hush—and finds its own voice. With bold shapes, deeply saturated colors, and simple language, Mary Murphy revels in the joy of sound and offers an ode to individuality sure to enchant the youngest of listeners.
