    From the day we received Crow Made a Friend by Margaret Peot in the mail, the book has captivated my preschooler Had the author chosen to make the crow black, as they are in real life, this book never would have received the love and attention from my child The rainbow crow, bright and vibrant, dances off the page and compliments the simplistic words, making it a great read for any emergent reader.I have read this book to my little girl enough times, at her request, so that she has the book memo [...]

    There is a certain magic in children s books that a crow can be rainbow colored and can use his wings and beak to make a friend out of twigs, leaves, or snow The wind and the sun take away these friends but another rainbow crow appears and soon there is a nest with baby birds It is great to let young children read this simple text and delight in the colorful image of this bird However, don t get mixed up with reality or it could be a little hard to answer any why or how questions that might come [...]

    Crow is lonely, but has a plan Crow will make a friend Using natural objects available during each of the changing seasons Crow crafts a bird before finally making a live friend and then starting a family.This story is really interesting and helps build early reading skills Pen and ink watercolor artwork I liked that Crow was depicted as having rainbow coloring Recommended for PreK 3.

    I don t normally like crows, especially the regular black ones but this crow deserves something way better than a lame leaf friend or even a snow friend this colourful crow deserves a family Simple reading for fun for your early reading learner K 2.
