Crow Call by Lois Lowry

Lowry, Lois Crow Call, illustrated by Bagram Ibatoulline. Scholastic Press, October 2009. A young lady goes with her father early one morning to hunt the crows that are ruining their crops. When her talent with the crow call brings the birds in large numbers, however, her delight in their antics is tempered by her realization that her father means to kill the crows. Based on a true incident in Lowry’s own young life, Lowry uses this one incident to illustrate how parents and children are always trying to understand each other. EL – OPTIONAL.
