Sylvia and the Birds reviewed on Ako


Jody Anderson has reviewed Sylvia and the Birds: How The Bird Lady saved thousands of birds and how you can, too by Johanna Emeney and Sarah Laing. She says:

‘Sylvia and the Birds is a simply stunning book to read and explore. The amazing illustrations tell a story of their own. The book is hardcover, and every page is a visual treat for the reader young or old. The illustrations made the book more accessible to my child who is neurodiverse. It was a more ‘grown-up’ book, which can be hard to find for neurodiverse children. The book underpins beautiful values about the importance of looking after all, including our birds. It tells a story of one remarkable women’s commitment to caring for and looking after 140,000 birds here in Aotearoa.’
