Cover image for CATCHING FLIGHTIntricately detailed birds seemingly fly off the pages of this poetic and encouraging picture book about hope and resilience. It's the perfect gift for birdwatchers, graduates, or anyone seeking motivation.

Catch the current of a bird’s wing. Dance with hope into open skies.

From avid birder and acclaimed wildlife illustrator Rebekah Lowell comes a soaring message of encouragement.

Readers will find inspiration in a Yellow Warbler greeting a sunrise, a flock of Canada Geese supporting each other by sharing the weight of the wind, a Red-Tailed Hawk trusting its own wings, and a plucky Northern Saw-Whet Owl braving a chilly night.

Ending on the optimistic note of a new day, this book is a parable about enduring life's setbacks, as well as a glorious celebration of the outdoors.

An afterword is included, with factual information about the ten birds featured in the book.
