Try, try again is the lesson Crow teaches beginning readers in this picture book reader. Crow was all alone. But like all crows, he was very clever. Using autumn leaves for wings, sticks for the body and a crab apple for the head, Crow made a friend! But winter winds blew in, destroying his creation. Undaunted, Crow fashioned another bird friend out of snow but could not prevent it from melting in the warm spring sun. Alone again, Crow heard the caw, caw, caw of a real, live bird. Together they built a nest and by summer, Crow had a family. This warm, satisfying story celebrates perseverance and ingenuity. An I Like to Read® book. Guided Reading Level D.

* "A brightly illustrated story perfect for the very beginner reader."—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
"In the well-composed ink-and-watercolor artwork, the unexpectedly brilliant hue of Crow's feathers glow against the many white backgrounds. A short, satisfying read-aloud choice with an inviting jacket and pictures that show up beautifully from a distance."—Booklist
"Another excellent addition to a series that combines a picture book format with easy reader controlled vocabulary."—School Library Journal
