Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This easy-to-read overview of the bird family describes in simple terms the characteristics that make a bird a bird: feathers, wings, tail, hollow bones, bills, egg laying and "most birds can fly." Clear photographs include a variety of birds, all labeled by common name, many of which can be found in North America. The book also introduces the format of a cut-away diagram to show bird lungs and bird skeletons, a new visual feature for some preschoolers and kindergartners. The text invites readers to consider bird qualities and to discuss whether everything that lays and egg or flies is a bird. It's a good discussion starter and one that introduces children to closer observation of our avian neighbors. Part of "The Animal Kingdom" series. 2001, Capstone, $13.25. Ages 5 to 7.
