“Poetry flutters across the pages of this lovely book. . . . Each poem is witty and thoughtful and enlivens its subject. . . . Every bird seems to come alive.” — School Library Journal (starred review)

Take to the sky to explore a glorious array of all things avian, from the tiny, restless hummingbird to the inscrutable horned owl to the majestic bald eagle. David Elliott and Becca Stadtlander bestow a sense of wonder onto such common birdfeeder visitors as the sparrow, the crow, and the cardinal and capture the exotic beauty of far-flung fowl like the Andean condor, the Australian pelican, and the Caribbean flamingo.

This is a book of poems about birds. It features 16 birds from around the world, including my favorite, the Japanese crane. It reminds me of a fighting ninja. All of the poems are short, and they rhyme. I learned in school that poems don’t have to rhyme but I think they are more fun to read. Some of the birds in this book are common like the sparrow and others come from faraway places like the Andean Condor. I would give this book four stars because I liked learning about birds from all over the world. The pictures are beautiful. I didn’t understand all of the words in the book so I had to use a dictionary or ask my mom. Overall, it was a fun book and I’d read it again. It would be good for someone in first or second grade.
