This book won a Caldecott award for its stunning illustrations that amplify a great message. The images are fun to look at and have wonderful colors on every page.

I would use this in a future classroom because it teaches children a great message about how not everything is always what it seems, and we should appreciate everything that we do have instead of focusing on what we don't.

I would use this in my classroom to show kids that they should appreciate what they have and the grass isn't always greener on the other side.

This award winner is a very fun and engaging read. The illustrations are enjoyable to look at because of the style and the colors that are used. The illustrations really do a good job of extending the text through detail.

“The grass isn't always greener on the other side“. This quote is the main theme of the story as Al and Eddie learned they are happier at home than then are in the bird paradise.

This book has a very interesting ending which I‘m sure children would be interested in. This story teaches children that the grass isn‘t always greener on the other side and they should appreciate what they have.

Award: Caldecott
Review: Al and Eddie live in a cramped one room apartment. Soon, however, a magical bird comes along promising a magical escape from their cramped living arrangements. However, Al and Eddie find that their sweet escape isn‘t all that it was cracked up to be. After some ups and downs, Al and Eddie eventually come to the conclusion that there is no place like home.
