This powerful story of migration and perseverance parallels a grandmother’s journey from Croatia to New Zealand with the godwit birds’ flight across the ocean. Insights such as “hard times are just the way to something much better” and “with the right kind of eyes you can see something good that no one else has seen” bring wisdom to an inspiring tale of courage. Sparkling, fantastical illustrations enchant, sprucing up a tough life with a bit of magic and imagination. Ages five to nine.
