A Crow of His Own by Megan Dowd Lambert - ADVISABLE

Lambert, Megan Dowd, A Crow of His Own, illustrated by David Hyde Costello. PICTUREBOOK. Charlesbridge, 2015. $16.95.Content: G.  

When Clyde comes to the farm to replace the former Rooster (who has left the farm to pursue new opportunities), he is worried about impressing the other animals, after all, Larry was a Superstar!  But trying to be like Larry isn’t right for Clyde.  He needs to have a crow of his own.  

This book about being yourself is a delightful read!  The author has avoided marking dialogue with “said”, a great lesson in how the animals talk to each other.  The pictures are terrific!  A fun story.
