Baba Didi and the Godwits Fly by Nicola Muir

The godwits are an iconic bird species with a long bill which migrate each year from New Zealand/Aotearoa through East Asia and the Pacific to the Alaskan Arctic regions. A girl and her grandmother (Baba Didi) are on a beach watching the godwits and their epic migration is charmingly told touching on waves of human migration and resilience on the way.
