On Bird HillBook - 2016
A young boy and his dog witness a chick hatching from an egg.
From iconic award-winning and NY Times bestselling children's author of more than 370 books, Jane Yolen, and award-winning illustrator, Bob Marstall, On Bird Hill is a wonderful new picture book created in collaboration with the esteemed Cornell Lab of Ornithology, the world authority on birds.
On Bird Hill is first in a new Jane Yolen series created for the Cornell Lab, loosely based on the old cumulative nursery rhyme/song "The Green Grass Grew All Around," a nursery rhyme first published as a song in 1912 with words by William Jerome and melody by Harry Von Tilzer. But in this version, it's a boy and his dog who find the bird in a nest on a hill in a strange valley.
This beautiful and enchanting story is sure to attract interest from millions of readers and fans of Jane's popular classics.
As with all Cornell Lab Publishing Group books, 25% of the net proceeds from the sale of On Bird Hill goes directly to the Cornell Lab to support projects such as children’s educational and community programs.
