Bill O. Smith, a former elementary school principal in Traverse City, Michigan came up with the idea for his first children’s book, Chickadees At Night, when he retired to care for his former mother-in-law and they would watch the birds, especially chickadees at the feeders.
Now his second book in the Chickadee Series, The Chickadee Spirit takes the reader into a curious winter community of hidden creatures and starry wonders not so far from the back door. The book draws children in with the rhyme and pictures and holds their interest as they participate in exploring the pages for hiding chickadees.
Both books are now available at the Wild Birds Unlimited - East Lansing store. Take a peek at the book: http://youtu.be/wlcFLk9M7kc
