"Simple, colorful illustrations complement the text, with the white and gray of the storks set against vibrant spring blossoms and muted shades of autumn skies. Several aspects of life in Israel enhance the story: the annual migration of birds and the cooperative community environment of the kibbutz."
"Maya is a faithful observer of the stork who migrates from Africa to Europe each year, often stopping to rest on her kibbutz. In Tami Lehman-Wilzig's
, illustrated by Anna Shuttlewood, Maya spies a bird with a broken wing, rescues it and nurses the bird she names Yaffa back to health. When baby birds are hatched, using kibbutz ingenuity and compassion, a bucket loader carries Yaffa to the nest so she can mother the chirping chicks."
"The soft edges and muted colors of Shuttlewood's watercolor illustrations perfectly complement this low-key, pleasant, but improbable tale of animal rescue."
