A 2014 Robert F. Sibert Honor Book
You don t have to own binoculars and know a bunch of fancy Latin names to watch birds No matter where you live, they re in your neighborhood just look up.
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 ("e;Here I am, the noble spruce grouse. In a spruce grove. Eatin some spruce. Yep."e;). Interactive and enjoyable tips bring an age-old hobby to new life for the next generation of bird-watchers."e;
