Summary of Elsie's Bird Summary of Elsie's Bird Reviews for Elsie's Bird An Excerpt from Elsie's Bird
Elsie is a city girl. She loves the noise of the cobbled streets of Boston. But when her mother dies and her father moves them to the faraway prairies of Nebraska, Elsie hears only the silence, and she feels alone in the wide sea of grass. Her only comfort is her canary, Timmy Tune. But when Timmy flies out the window, Elsie is forced to run after him, into the tall grass of the prairie, where she's finally able to hear the voice of the prairie-beautiful and noisy- and she begins to feel at home.

Jane Yolen and David Small create a remarkable, poetic, vividly rendered book about finding one's place in the world.
