Dylan Metrano’s cut paper illustrations create the illusion of stained glass windows. Each page highlights one bird and one statement about each. The end of the book has space to tell more information about each of the birds included in the book. The opening and closing of the book ties in the “Every Day” statement from the title to indicated that while we may observe these birds every day and they might seem more or less mundane at times, we are also learning more about their behavior every day as well and enjoying the beauty they add to the landscape and environment every day.
