Children's Literature - Julia Beiker
Through comical characters and funny rhyme, young readers will learn facts about birds. For instance, birds have backbones so they are vertebrates, or they live in different types of terrain including the desert. Each page takes the reader to a more imaginative place where learning about birds can be outrageous and fun at the same time. The colorful illustrations depict both realistic and fantasy pictures that create entertainment, but it could require a little explanation to preschool age readers. A glossary for vocabulary words like predator or forearms would have been beneficial. Endpages inform the readers about more cool facts, which is a refreshing way to let them know to keep reading. It can also be used help with a simple report on birds or reference for a teacher to use for Venn diagram or other classroom mapping. This book is part of series "Animal Groups are Categorical."
