STOCKDALE, Susan Bring on the Birds Working Title Press, 2014 unpaged $24.99 ISBN 9781921504594 SCIS 1655839
This book is especially written for the young ornithologist. Not only does the book contain vivid illustrations of the various birds depicted, but also at the end of the book more in-depth information about each bird is provided.
The story depicts the various actions (such as swooping, hanging, swimming) or physical characteristics (such as jagged bills, fluffy crests, puffy chests) of birds, and each bird is represented by vibrant illustrations that add richness to the text. This book is great for toddlers who will love the bright pictures through to pre-schoolers who want to explore the more detailed information at the end of the book.
