School Library Journal - 12/01/2015 PreS-Gr 1—Rainbow-hued Crow is lonely. He makes a friend out of sticks and leaves, but the wind blows it away. When winter comes, Crow tries again with snow. Sweetly, Crow tries to shade his friend from the sun with a fallen leaf, but the sun melts it. Finally, Crow hears another bird cawing and makes a real friend with another lovely rainbow-hued crow. They make a nest. When spring arrives, Crow and his friend make a family. Colorful Crow and the elements of nature, rendered in watercolors, stand out against a white background, making the artwork noteworthy. With so few actual words, the illustrations help tell the story. VERDICT Another excellent addition to a series that combines a picture book format with easy reader controlled vocabulary.—Mindy Whipple, West Jordan Library, UT - Copyright 2015 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
