The Big Woods Orchestra, Genechten
Author & Illustrator: Guido van Genechten
Format: Hardcover, 30 pages
Publisher: Clavis Publishing (2012)
Composing a beautiful ode to nature for children, this picture book captures a marvelous sound — the musicians of the Big Woods Orchestra, tuning up in the early morning. As the rooster announces it is time to begin, the tawny owl hoots, the great spotted woodpecker taps away and the rest of the orchestra’s birds welcome the new spring day in a united voice. Atmospheric and melodious illustrations bring the birdsong of the forest to life in this charming exploration.
