From hummingbirds to eagles, this book waxes poetic about birds from all over in all kinds of weather. There are Japanese cranes dancing in the snow, flamingos, bowerbirds, condors and puffins. Elliott includes a few backyard feeder-friends we might already know: woodpecker, blue jay, cardinal, crow.
The illustrations are luscious, with details of feathers and beaks right on down to the toes.
Head over to Archimedes Notebook for some “beyond the book” activities and thoughts on noisy turkeys.
