Crane & CraneChronicle Books
written by Linda Joy Singleton, illustrated by Richard Smythe
A sandhill crane lifts a stick. A construction crane lifts a log. The two cranes grab, stretch, and stack, working through bad weather and difficult obstacles toward their end goal: building a home for a new family. Told in a simple sequence of verbs, this colorful picture book demonstrates how the mechanical world mirrors the natural world.
Ages 4 to 6
