PreS-Gr 2–Mixed-media illustrations take readers on a visit to Taiwan through the eyes of a young child and a red bird as they leave their home and see the city environs and the landscape of Taiwan unfold before their eyes, before making their way home again. This title uses spare language and detailed collage illustrations to transport readers to a varied landscape; the book would be useful in classes studying community structures or food supply issues, as well as for lessons in cross-cultural studies.
VERDICT Visually complex and also relatable to a young audience, this sophisticated title would make a useful contribution to most library collections.
