Review: A wee bird was watching

Books a wee bird was watching

A Wee Bird was Watching follows little Anna and her mother as they journey through strange woodland, seeking food and safe rest despite lurking dangers. It is both a thoughtful and a joyful imagination of how the robin could have got his red breast. Written by Scottish singer Karine Polwart, this picture book’s lyrical language is as beautiful as its magical illustrations – a wintery story with modern resonance that will bring a glow to bedtime on the coldest nights.
