Product Details


“Lively but minimal text with short sentences and a rhythmic pattern make this valuable both as a read-aloud and as an option for budding readers. Rockwell’s bright, eye-catching images, rendered in gouache, watercolor, and colored pencil, add to the appeal.”—School Library Journal
“The full-page pictures and minimal text are just right for young readers, but older children will enjoy learning the names of the multitude of birds inhabiting the scenes, ensuring that this book will go far with new readers and budding birders.”—Booklist
“Simple and straightforward, just right for preschool listeners. But it has the added attraction of accurate, full-page or double-page–spread illustrations of more than 40 species of birds, labeled and shown in typical habitats. . . . Widely useful, this should be a welcome addition to the nature shelf.” Kirkus Reviews

“Rockwell walks readers through the characteristics that make birds, well, birds, accompanied by vivid, mixed-media portraits of dozens of avian specimens. . . . Direct writing and handsome labeled images of birds in their native environments (egrets and spoonbills hunt in shallow water, an owl and whip-poor-will appear camouflaged against tree bark) clearly demonstrate their breadth and diversity. Publishers Weekly
“Detailed, captioned illustrations in gouache, watercolor, and colored pencil support and extend the text by showing selected birds from around the world”—The Horn Book
