This short story consisted of a group of birds migrating for the winter.
Unable to settle in their location of choice, because of circumstances,
they had to quickly find a new place to settle. With food supply scarce
and other detriments facing them, Robbie feared for the worse. He was
responsible for their safety. He must not fail!

There were good points on being responsible, trustworthy, persevering,
and optimistic. It also emphasized unity, safety in numbers, and the
importance of taking care of our environment. This has adventure mixed
with teaching moments. It would have been nice to have events built up
more for mid-elementary since it is written as a chapter book.
The illustrations it has are colorful and fun. ( )

When you watch the birds outside your window preparing to fly south for the winter, do you ever wonder how they know where to go, and in which direction?

Well, in this delightful book you follow Robby the Robin, his brother, and a variety of feathered friends on their adventures south.

The flock, led by Robby, leave their big Maple tree with its bird feeder and lovely birdbath and set off, they've decided democratically, that Florida is going to be their spring break destination.

Each adult bird has a job, and the parents supervise their children.

Disaster strikes when one youngster goes missing on the way. What has happened to her? Will they be able to find her?

However, things get worse when they arrive to find Florida has been struck by a hurricane and there's no food to be found anywhere. Follow their adventures as they struggle to find warmth and food.

Will they be able to find their way to safety and survive?

I think this is a lovely children's book, which through an interesting story explains in a child friendly way, bird behaviour and migration. ( )
