In our May issue, we asked kids to imagine they were a bird and write about what it would feel like, using the prompt, "If I were a bird..." Below, find the winning entries. Charlotte and Maya each receive a $25 gift certificate to the Crow Bookshop in Burlington.

Charlotte Niles, 6, Cambridge
If I were a bird, I would be named Sky.
I would fly high up i the sky.
When I see food, I would drop down
I build a nest with leaves and mud.
If I were a bird, I would be an American Goldfinch.
I would say Potato Chip, Potato Chip,
If I were a bird.

Maya Volpe, 7, Benson
If  I were a bird
I would see
The green grass below me
as I fly above the rest of the flock
in the beautiful blue sky
I'm looking for a tree to build my nest
a tree with fruit
a tree with leaves
to protect me on a stormy day.
