Description
 
The fertile land of Killingworth is brimming with crops to harvest, & birds feast happily on wheat, corn, & rye. But the townsfolk are fed up with the birds’ stealing their crops. And among the disenchanted is the  farmer Squire Case. Resolved to rid the community of the pests, he calls a town meeting & proclaims that all adult birds should be killed & their young left to die of starvation. However, the squire’s own daughter, Almira; the shy schoolmaster, Noah; & the neighborhood children come up with a plan to rescue the orphaned fledglings. Based upon a poem of the same name by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. “A hopeful, high-spirited tale -- a reminder that the compassion & humanity of just a few can help ensure the prosperity of all living creatures.”
