song of the cardinal

I love this book. My daughter surprized me with finding a copy of it,after I'd envied a very expensive copy "discovered" on a rarebooks shelf in a used book store. ( I am surprizing her,years later,buying her a copy today :-) , I HAVE to keep mine! ) I hand raised a nest of abandoned cardinals as a young girl..such wonderful birds...Gene Stratton-Porter knew them well.. I became a fan of all of her books. Love them

An easy-to-read nature lover's story

My daughter had to read this book for a school project. She enjoyed it a lot; it has a good message like many Gene Stratton-Porter books.

The Song of the Cardinal

I was so surprised to get this book and find that it really is a story all about a cardinal. I have read other books by Gene Stratton Porter and loved them. I think I would have known this book was written by her even if I did not know when I started the book. The describtive phrases are so good and so realistic. She must have observed cardinals for a very long time to be able to write this. Very Good! PK Nica

Sweet story

This was my first time reading a Gene Porter Stratton book. A friend loaned it to me. I thought the story was sweet, well written and the pictures wonderful. I would love to visit her home site some day. And I have ordered more of her books as well as a copy of "The Song of a Cardinal" for my mother, who is an avid bird watcher!

A sweet simple story.

I bought this book after reading FRECKLES, the only other book I have read by GENE STRATTON PORTER. I found the book to be surprisingly entertaining since it is such a simple story. This book is written in such a way that you can almost see the cardinal. It may not reach everyone in the same manner but if you're in the mood for a calm relaxing read ,this is it.
