What a fantastic book about birds. I heard about this nonfiction book from a blog I follow, so I picked it up from the library. The illustrations inside are beautiful and most of the them are life-like. The book is filled with information that will please most bird enthusiast and I feel that this book would look beautiful on a coffee table even though it is a labeled a child’s nonfiction book.

The book begins with a detailed table of contents for those who are searching for specifics. The categor

Did you know this was the year of the bird? This fantastic guide will introduce readers to all things birds in art, history, story, science and so much more.

Birds can be found all across the earth and come in all shapes, sizes and beautiful colors. Did you know birds have been around longer than humans? Birds are the only living creatures on earth with feathers, but they are not the only creatures that lay eggs. Birds are warm blooded and so they must keep their eggs warm so they will hatch. Sin

I was mesmerized reading this bird book that is full of interesting information, photography, illustrations, and poetry. Upon opening the book, the reader will find bird quotes on the endpapers, setting the stage for the learning that will occur! What Defines a Bird, in the opening pages, is a nice way to help children understand just what birds are and to come up with a "bird definition". The bird anatomy pages diagram birds with labels fo the body parts and feather types. I cannot think of a f ...more

Any child that has any interest in poetry, pictures, stories and loves birds (which let's be honest, that is everyone) and appreciates the beauty of nature needs this book! It book has both breathtaking photos and the poems and stories are just stunning! I don't think that I can truly capture the absolute beauty that is in this book! The photos...seriously...I can get lost inside them. I love the accompanying information that takes you further into the beauty and splendor of nature and the compl ...more

This book is fantastic. GORGEOUS photographs of birds, excellent layout, bright colors, easy to read and interesting. There’s a scattering of poems throughout. Also included: state birds and facts, birds in pop culture (very recent stuff, as fresh as 2017)

Note- A bunch of evolution and dinosaur connections

There is so much to love about this beautiful book by National Geographic! It covers so many different things about birds ranging from science to culture. I would have given this book a 5 if it wasn’t for two things—the text is often too small for a kids book and I wish they would have incorporated more of the poetry from Jane Yolen and Heidi Stemple.
