    This is loosely biographical Okay it has talking sparrows but the basic bones of the story are factual And it's an interesting story Introduced species are science curriculum and this reveals an intentional introduction that actually had a positive effect Now I don't know if there weren't eventual negative conseuences of bringing sparrows to America but at least this one started out well The story is pretty good I could have done without the talking bird interlude in the middle but I can overlook that The illustrations are nice in a comical sort of way

    Delightful tale about a wise man and helpful birds who work together to solve a big problem dramatized with nostalgic eye catching illustrations A loving tribute to all of the birds especially sparrows “who share this world with us so cheerfully” and those who appreciate them

    Interesting almost biography I'm sure some liberties were taken in the name of storytelling about the man who brought English sparrows to the US to eat the inchworms It's presented as a good thing but I'm curious about the other repercussions Did the sparrows further disrupt a different part of the ecosystem? This would be useful in a unit about biology native animals and food chains
