Cute story about a budding friendship. Same author as another of our favorite books - A Sick Day for Amos McGee.

In A Home for Bird, a scavenging toad named Vernon finds lost a cuckoo clock bird and helps him find his home. A Caldecott Winner for A Sick Day for Amos McGee, Philip C. Stead layers water soluble crayons with goauche to create the warm, generous illustrations that reward slow reading. Check out Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast's excellent interview with Stead about A Home for Bird's creation complete with in progress artwork for the book: http://blaine.org/sevenimpossiblethings/?p=2344
