A Book and a Hug


Bring On the Birds

Reviewed by Katy Manck on May 23, 2013.

Birds identified by their actions and their unique attributes are the stars of this rhyming board book which includes both the familiar and the not-so-common.

Susan Stockdale enhances the important characteristics of each bird and its habitat while stripping away non-essential details, giving young readers bright and accurate images of birds in the air, on and under the water, and on land.

Most importantly, the book's ending reminds youngsters that although these birds have very different appearances and habits, they are all birds because they have feathers and hatch from eggs.

Also look for Stockdale's board book about Fabulous Fishes to introduce the littlest listeners to fish in great variety.
