The Bird Book

Clarion. Dec. 2022. 48p. Tr $18.99. ISBN 9780358325697.
Gr 1-5–This book is all readers have come to expect from this pair. The bold and detailed illustrations pop out from the stark white backgrounds, surrounded by informational text laid out in a handwritten-style font. The information starts with the general approach—“What is a Bird?”—and continues through anatomical features, senses, flight, and their evolution from dinosaurs. How they nest, feed, defend themselves, and migrate is all included, as is a discussion of the modern environmental stresses on birds. As with the previous books, this one is jam-packed with comprehensive information and fun facts alike. A table in the back of the book outlines the size, diet, and range of all the birds represented in the book. It’s high quality in illustration and information presented.
VERDICT Purchase for school and public library nonfiction collections and wherever the team’s previous work has been well received.
