The Hawk and the Dove

We rated this book:


A hawk has had enough and doesn’t want war anymore. He changes and becomes a dove, a sign of peace. Hawks hunted messenger pigeons in the war, so maybe that’s one of the reasons the hawk is a sign of war. Throughout the book, war weapons like planes, ships, and cannons turn into peaceful things like butterflies, sail boats, and tractors. On one page, flowers are growing out of the tops of the soldiers’ guns. You lift the flap to see these changes, and the top war page is smaller and lines up with the peaceful drawing underneath. It’s fun to lift the flap, which is a different way to read a book. I love to see how the author lined it all up. <br><br>The illustrations are so beautiful and colorful. The author used pieces of cut and torn paper and glued them on before he printed it. You can even see some of the shadow behind the paper. One of my favorite pages is the one with lots of plants. There are so many different kinds of plants, and they are interesting and beautiful. If you like lift-the-flap, you will love this wonderful rhyming book.
