"The sandpiper stretched its wings in the chilling breeze. It knew it was time to leave...so it took flight. Beautifully illustrated, this is a deceptively simple story of a sandpiper's migration journey. Over vast and varied landscapes, over people dealing with hardships ranging from floods to their own migration, the occasional feather falls, catching the eye of someone below, bringing them a moment of joy, or helping them imagine a way out. Arriving finally to its destination, the sandpiper loses one more feather, grasped out of the air by a little girl. Both bird and child are safe and snug in their cozy home by the water and realize how lucky they are."--
