K-Gr 3–Beautiful and fascinating birds exist all around, according to Ward’s new guide on amateur ornithology. As a little boy and girl go exploring, the text offers clues on where and how bird-watchers should look for feathered friends. Ward, an avian enthusiast, advises readers to look on the ground, try to detect camouflaged birds, and remain still and quiet to hear bird sounds. Sudyka’s illustrations are stunning and detailed. Each bird is labeled, and the sounds the birds make swoop across the page in varied fonts. The text itself is simple and engaging, and Ward’s passion for birds and love of nature are apparent.
VERDICT This brief and visually captivating title will inspire readers to get outside and watch birds.
