In a little over a week's time (as in Sunday the thirteenth of May), it will be Mother's Day! And if anyone knows the importance of a mother, it's is Frannie and Vincenzo, who are two to of Cam's (my visiting cardinal) children!
Cam can be seen with each of them (respectively) in the photos atop this entry. They are very near and dear to her, and vice versa as evidenced in her book series, Words In Our Beak (which is pictured below).
Her stories are impressive, therefore, if you still have your mother, or grandmother, or have a sister who is a mother, an aunt who is a mother, a niece or a cousin who is a mother, a daughter or daughter-in-law who is a mother or even a good friend who is a mother, this is a good time to think about offering your special person or persons, the gift of Cam's book series,
Here are some remarks (reviews) from a few folks who have bought her book (or books):
"SO happy that this wonderful book is now in hardcover! WORDS IN OUR BEAK is the perfectly delightful holiday gift -- beautiful, educational, and fun, it is a good read for anyone of any age. Little Cam will be so busy visiting folks I know all over the country to fly them to NewYork City, and to give them her magical tour! Thank you, Cam! Thank you, too, for allowing Patricia Youngquist to tell your story!"
"If you are not yet a bird-lover, you will be after reading this book. Words in our Beak is so enchanting as it follows a little cardinal named, Cam, through the rooftops of NYC and beyond. Cam has so much to share from a bird's eye perspective, it was hard to put the book down. I became enveloped in Cam's world by imagining what it is like to live on a rooftop, choose the right flowers to eat, and listen to the world around in the most intimate, gentle and fascinating ways. Thank you, Cam! I hope to read ever more of your travels in the new year!"
"Visually beautiful, fanciful and such an enamoring way to learn more about our feathered friends."

Additionally, I have rendered some images from these books into other formats and they are available via Fine Art America (FAA). Some of my other photographs (Black & White Collection, Kaleidoscopic Images and the famous Mandarin duck who visited NYC) can also be found on my FAA pages.
