About the Book
Hand-in-hand with Pili, the reader discovers the adventures of a little girl who travels the world with her dad, National Geographic photographer and Safina Center fellow Kike Calvo.
The birds are losing their colors out of sadness because they are losing their homes. A world without colorful birds is a world much less beautiful than the world we were born to. Can Pili find a way to reverse this tragedy, and get the birds’ colors back? There is a way. As you’ll read in this terrific story.”
~ Carl Safina

At once full of radiance and joy, sadness and loss, the book encourages children to embrace conservation, to love nature, and to be kind to the world. Kike Calvo has written a beautiful book destined to be beloved by many.”
