Accompanied by beautiful watercolour illustrations by Kwantlen artist Elinor Atkins, this children’s story follows a young Kwantlen girl who shares her life with the birds of the island she calls home. Collecting piles of sticks and moss for the builders of nests, sharing meals with the eagles and owls, the girl forms a lifelong bond with her feathered friends, and soon they will begin to return her kindness.
Written with Dandurand’s familiar simplicity and grace, The Girl Who Loved the Birds is a striking story of kinship and connection. This book contains 30 Watercolour illustrations.
