Yellow Bird, Black Spider by Dosh and Mike Archer

In Yellow Bird, Black Spider, authors Dosh and Mike Archer created a darling book with bright and fun pictures. Published in 2004, Black Spider keeps asking why Yellow Bird doesn't do things differently.

For instance: When Yellow bird takes a blue boat, Black Spider asks, "Why don't you fly across the sea?" "I like to sail, actually," said yellow bird. This continues on throughout the book until the surprise ending. Each page introduces a new color, which means this book teaches about colors and about doing what is right for yourself even if other people question your choices.

Link to our NICU book registry if you'd like to donate books to babies in the newborn intensive care unit so their parents can read to them while they grow. You can also donate gently used books to our project by sending them to me or to Angie. Email me for a mailing address. We are in need of Spanish books at this time, especially board books. We can always use both English and Spanish books. If you have a graduate of the NICU, or if you have a baby whose life you would like to honor by donating books to this project, let me know, and I can make a book plate with their name for the book you donate. 

On Christmas Eve, these two books came in memory of Liam Heintz. I find the title of the first one especially fitting for Liam. 

Michelle sent this batch over:

And Janice sent this batch of books:

Thank you for thinking of our book project this holiday season. I delivered 38 packets of books to Angie on Christmas Day.

Read to a child today even if that child is you.
