Two Birds in a Box by KT Valliere-Denis Ouilette
Join the Dee family as they adopt two little sparrows found abandoned in the garage of their home in Mountain Lakes, New Jersey, and try to return them to their own family and community of sparrows in the wild. Everyday family life is writ large in nature.
This is the true story of a family who had the rare privilege of entering into the world of a beautiful family of sparrows, a story of the sharing of family responsibilities, a mom and dad and their three children helping a mom and dad sparrow care for their two mischievous sparrow children until, like all grown children, they were ready to fly-having learned in a most unorthodox way!
-A comical view of the way suburban family life can reflect nature.
-A book that lets young readers "discover the joy of discovery" itself in saving the life of two baby sparrows, with an element of mystery waiting in every chapter.
-This is a book that brings to young people the spirit of working together with nature in a family environment.
