"There are birds everywhere! Some of them live along the coast, some of them in the savannah, and some may be in your backyard. Young readers will learn where in the world all sorts of birds can be found and all the weird and wonderful things about them that they never imagined"-- Provided by publisher.

Birds present an astonishing range of colors, sizes, and behaviors, and though no book can cover the incredible variety, this one gamely gives it a go, packing an impressive amount of diversity into a slim survey of the subject. After a crash course in basic bird biology humorously titled "It's a bird! (So what is that?)," readers are whisked along an evolutionary trail before the more in-depth studies begin. Birds from every continent are included, and while topics are mostly general (flight, feeding habits, courtship rituals), a few species are treated to more thorough investigations. The spectacular spreads are broken up into colored text boxes and have "Can you find it?" challenges sprinkled throughout, keeping the audience engrossed and entertained. The lively digital illustrations are glorious; younger readers will delight in the riot of color and movement, older children will find a wealth of astonishing facts, and all ages will discover new details upon every further examination. A sensational introduction to the weird and wonderful world of birds. Grades 1-3. Copyright 2023 Booklist Reviews.
