One of my all-time favorite authors teams with his wife for this gem. Wondrous, reverent, charming.  From School Library Journal Review:

“Once I saw seven birds on the telephone wire. They didn’t move and they didn’t move and they didn’t move. I looked away for just a second….” Three lines of identically positioned birds on wires appear with the text across the spread. Then a page turn reveals a thick, black, empty wire stretched across a stark white spread along with the words “and they were gone.”
