There is a lot we can learn from birds if we pay attention. This elegant, illustrated volume invites us to take a step back from our busy lives, to reconnect with nature, and to listen to the tiny philosophers of the sky. These seemingly delicate creatures routinely weather the fiercest storms and travel thousands of miles each year migrating with the changing seasons are paragons of beauty and grace. If we're willing to take the time to notice, we can learn valuable lessons about independence, vulnerability, gender equality, hierarchy and power, and more.
