Snowflakes whirling,
snowflocks swirling,
streaks of white
twirl through the night . . .

With elegant verse by Lee Bennett Hopkins Poetry Honoree Kirsten Hall and striking illustrations by awardwinning artist Jenni Desmond, Snow Birds salutes the brave and resourceful birds who adapt to survive the coldest months.
