This photographic picture book captures in lush detail the story of these tiny, colorful, and diverse birds. April Pulley Sayre's vibrant photography has been called "striking" and "wonderful in every way" by Kirkus Reviews, and Warbler Wave is just that"-- Provided by publisher.

    *Starred Review* This stunning, oversize book opens with migrating warblers flying before daybreak: "Tiny. / Strong. / Pushed along / by wings / and rivers of wind. / They share / the air / with buildings, / bats, turbines, and towers. / Then bedraggled, they drop, / A refueling stop." The terse verse defines their purposes and provides a light narrative structure, while leaving space for viewers to linger over the large, beautifully composed photos showcasing the birds and their fascinating, purposeful actions. For 28 years, Sayre and her husband, Jeff (credited with some of the photos here), have taken time out every spring to observe migrating warblers. Spacious double-page spreads display their crisp, clean photos of these songbirds in woodland stopover sites. The enlarged, close-up pictures offer intimate glimpses of the colorful birds as they flit, walk, preen, sing, and forage for caterpillars, spiders, moths, and mosquitoes. For older readers, a four-page appended section discusses warblers and their migration: why they travel, how they find their way, and what enables them to maintain their energy during the long flights. An irresistible picture book for animal-lovers and a unique read-aloud choice for classes discussing migration. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
