As a solitary black bird wings its way through the day, little ones are treated to a magnificent flight from one vibrant color to another. Inimitable illustrator Steve Light showcases a new style in this board book for the youngest readers. Children can journey with the graceful blackbird and its tiny worm friend past orange leaves, through green grass, onto gray rocks, under pink flowers, and more before coming to rest beneath a brilliant blue moon.
"While no Caldecott, to the best of my knowledge, has ever been awarded to a board book, Steve Light’s apparently doing everything in his power to see if he can’t push that envelope a little. Geez, this is a pretty book."

"A delightful journey through a day filled with bright exciting colors...The story provides ample opportunities to talk about sizes, shapes, textures, and colors. Adventurous and exciting but simple enough for even the earliest readers, this is an excellent board book and a first purchase."

"Once again, Light (Trucks Go, 2008, etc.) shows his understanding of the target age group. Beautiful in its simplicity, this book deserves a spot on any toddler's bookshelf."
