Sayre, April Pulley

Seagulls Soar

(3) PS Illustrated by Kasia Bogdańska . "Seagulls swerve. / Seagulls soar. / Yack! Yack! Yack! / from ship to shore." With short rhyming lines somewhat reminiscent of rocking waves, Sayre follows gulls from ocean to desert to dump; informative back matter explains that "seagull is a common name for many species of birds in the family ­Laridae" and that some spend more time near water than others--but they are all survivors, adapting to changing ­conditions and habitats. Digital illustrations capture the variety of landscapes (and seascapes, and lakescapes) visited by gulls.
