In Chris Vadeboncour’s Mrs. Mourning Dove, readers will delight in Annie and Peter’s discovery of a new bird family nesting right outside the window. All it took was a potted geranium, a determined momma dove, and a lot of love to transform Annie and Peter’s ordinary winter on the Cape into a treasured story. As Annie, her grandson, and the community are awed by this late winter miracle, readers too will become inspired by this classic tale. Based on Vadeboncour’s real-life experience, Mrs. Mourning Dove is a story we all can relate to.
