Summary
Enter the world of birds for an incredible journey through the skies, into trees, and even underground.

Parrots, hummingbirds, eagles, and more swoop across the pages of this colorful bird book, which combines gorgeous illustrations and photos to help young enthusiasts learn all about the wonderful world of birds. From frozen icescapes to sweltering deserts, from prehistoric ancestors to amazing adaptations, they'll discover the surprising homes and habits of our feathered friends. They'll also find out about how we can help protect birds and their natural habitats.

The Extraordinary World of Birds , illustrated by Claire McElfatrick , takes children on a fascinating journey, showing them just how amazing birds are, what they do for our planet, and how we can help them. It includes bird families such as gamebirds, flightless birds, and perching birds, plus amazing facts on how birds talk to each other, what they eat, how they find partners, and how they are able to fly.




Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In this lavishly illustrated book about birds, the text tends to take the form of satisfyingly detailed picture captions, allowing the vibrant illustrations and remarkable photographs to take center stage. These graphics spill across thematic double-page spreads, which include some with vertical orientations and create inviting panoramas. The beginning chapter introduces the basics: how birds are related to dinosaurs, how birds fly, various types of nests, eggs, chicks, and diets. Subsequent chapters cover bird families (flightless birds, water birds, parrots), behavior (singing, mating displays, camouflage, migration), habitats (underground, forest, coastal, desert, city), and how birds interact with humans (domestic and working birds, pollinators, environmental and other man-made hazards, along with ways to help: feeding stations, bird baths, window decals to prevent glass strikes). A final spread urges readers to take up birding, and the book ends with a glossary, index, and list of national birds. This compilation packs in lots of information and a plethora of birds and is sure to appeal to young report writers, browsers, and bird enthusiasts alike."
