By Annette LeBlanc Cate
Illustrated by Annette LeBlanc Cate

“A chatty, appealing introduction. . . . Small and accessible, this is jam-packed with accurate information likely to increase any potential birder’s enthusiasm and knowledge.” — Kirkus Reviews(starred review)

This conversational, humorous introduction to bird-watching encourages kids to get outdoors with a sketchbook and really look around. Quirky full-color illustrations portray dozens of birds chatting about their distinctive characteristics, including color, shape, plumage, and beak and foot types, while tongue-in-cheek cartoons feature banter between birds, characters, and the reader. Interactive and enjoyable tips bring an age-old hobby to new life for the next generation of bird-watchers, and eighteen new pages of activities, including drawing, mapmaking, and a scavenger hunt, make this paperback edition a must-have.

  • Paperback includes eighteen bonus pages of activities to make a home a welcoming place for birds--ways to feed, provide water for, and shelter birds. Also included are activities such as drawing birds, making maps of places where birds live, and doing a scavenger hunt. The original content and these new activities are perfect for the school market and enhance any STEM program!
  • The perfect book for anyone who's interested in birds, anyone who thinks birds are boring -- and everyone in between!
  • Includes hilarious and kid-friendly bird facts and illustrations throughout
