This story starts out as a father/daughter bonding time over an adventure built around the activity of crow hunting and I really appreciate that the author is willing to let the characters buck the expected norm and make this story about growth, love and respect. For instance, the daughter dresses in an over-sized man's flannel shirt because that's what you wear to go hunting, and the topic of gender isn't made an issue even when the waitress mistakes her for a boy. It just becomes their little joke and they don't correct her. What I also appreciated was that when they do find the crows, the dad sees that his daughter loves them as they are and chooses to spare them instead of going through with their plan.

Excellent story , especially for the older ones and if a person knows anything about war and it's repercussions of having a parent away due to war. Well done story and based on the Author's true experience as a child. The girl also has a very understanding and caring father . Great illustrations .

I really enjoyed it; my five year-old, not so much. A touching story about a father (recently returned from the war) and the young daughter he barely knows.
