Pelican Here, Pelican There

Leonard Weisgard

Two pelicans live on Pelican Island off the coast of Florida, but a big storm blows one of them all the way up north where pelicans should never be. He starts for home, flying over many colorful, interesting places, but never stops to look until he reaches his partner in their nest, where a new family member is waiting for him.
This book encourages readers to search for the objects that the bird has missed, discovering them in the illustrations, on their own or together with the adult reading with them.

Leonard Weisgard (1916–2000) is a Caldecott award-winning illustrator of more than 200 children’s books, perhaps best known for his collaboration with the author Margaret Wise Brown.
He used a wide range of colors and media in his books, including gouache, poster paint, crayon, chalk, decoupage, stenciling and pen and ink.
