The Return of the Swallow, by Anne Sawyer

"The old pharaohs of Egypt used to see swallows fly close to the stars, and thought that they must be the souls of those who had passed on," Tim's Nana tells him. In this bittersweet story, young birdwatcher Tim discovers the beauty and power of the commonplace barn swallow: birth, nesting, feeding, and migration. The Return of the Swallow features color shadows, hand puppets, and small felted rod puppets, with old time music such as "I'll Fly Away."
