Lonnie the Loon Flies South for the Winter by Barbara Renner is a delightful storybook for children. Lonnie the loon is playing with his friends and a fisherman is watching the loons play. Lonnie's dad comes and tells him that it is now time for them to fly south as the entire lake will be covered with ice during the winter season. As they fly, Lonnie and his friends are carried away from the coastal waters due to the wind. They finally find a lake where both the air and conditions are dry. Lonnie learns a lot about desert animals and living in the desert. It's a cute story of friendship that will connect well with readers.

Children will love Lonnie, Quincy, and the other animals they meet in the story. The illustrations are appealing and they make the story come alive for readers. It's a good bedtime storybook and can also be used for read aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries. Through the story, children are introduced to the different types of animals that live in the desert and also about living in the desert. The book is educational as well as informative and readers learn a lot of new things. Stories with information, a concept, and messages are good for children to help them understand easily. Lonnie the loon and his stay at the desert lake teaches kids about desert life and the animals that can be found there. An excellent story with a good concept for young readers.
