While out foraging for interesting things, Vernon the toad finds a new friend - a small blue bird who is curiously silent. Vernon shows Bird the river and the forest and some of his other favorite things, but Bird says nothing. Vernon introduces Bird to his friends, Skunk and Porcupine, but Bird still says nothing.
"Bird is shy," says Vernon, "but also a very good listener."
Vernon worries that Bird is silent because he misses his home, so the two set off on a journey to help find a home for Bird.
This is a tender tale of a thoughtful friend who is determined to help his quiet companion, by the author ofA Sick Day for Amos McGee, winner of the 2011 Caldecott Medal.
A Home for Bird is a Kirkus Reviews Best Children's Book of 2012
