Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Multi-colored birds of Australia are brought to life in photos and text for young ornithologists. This volume in the "Nature Kids" series by Mason Crest Publishers is fact-filled and fascinating. The over-sized book allows for large photographs and easy-on-the-eyes text. Rainbow-colored chapter headings are eye-catching and cover topics from "What Is a Bird" to "Gardens and Birds." Readers will discover facts about nesting and how some birds catch a mate. They will read about Big Runners such as the Emu and Cassowary who cannot fly and defend themselves by kicking their opponents. Birds like gulls and pelicans drink salt water, have webbed feet and eat fish. Some fresh-water Australian birds have nests that actually float on the water. The Frogmouth bird pose like dead branch stumps during the day and hunt at night. The beautiful Bushland birds will amaze young readers with their tiny size and long tails. Endnotes in this book include further reading resources and places on the internet to visit for more information. This is a super resource book for the home library or classroom. 2003, Mason Crest Publishers,
