Hello, Crow! By Candace Savage and Chelsea O’Byrne - ADVISABLE

Hello, Crow! by Candace Savage, illustrated by Chelsea O’Byrne. PICTURE BOOK. Greystone Kids, 2019. $18. 9781771644440



Franny has been going outside every day to play and make friends with a crow – which even brings her presents.  But whenever she tries to tell her dad about the crow, he calls Franny a featherhead, a dreamer and wishes she were more reliable and tidy. It isn’t until Franny drags her dad outside and makes him sit and wait that he apologizes for doubting her and for not listening.

Savage’s text and O’Byrne’s illustrations make a nice whole.  I liked the girl getting to know the crow and vice versa.  And I REALLY liked the Dad waking up and realizing that his daughter was someone he should be listening to and believing.
