KIRKUS REVIEW

 A repetitive, lyrical text (``Black crow, black crow, what do you caw about?/What do you jaw about high in your tree?/I wake up my children, my small sleeping children...'')with just a few words changed in each versetakes a crow and her young through a day, from ``high in the sky'' to ``home in your nest.'' Parker pictures the young crows, who wear simple clothes and have toys, engaged in activities (eating, playing) paralleled by the child who asks the questions. A happy fusion of unusual idea, melodious words, and charmingly lucid art. (Picture book. 2-6)
