Colour and movement abound in every word and every detail, making each bird memorable.

Product Description

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2 A wonderful picture book depicting the wide variety of birds seen throughout the year and in various types of habitats (i.e., marsh birds, sea birds, flat-footed fishing birds). The birds are described throughout in lyrical running verse. It is, however, the stunning, vibrantly colorful plasticine-relief illustrations that make this book so special. This medium gives depth and texture to the pages, the scenes often shown from a bird's eye view. The birds really do appear to dive, dip, glide, and tip. The clever details and excellent page design maximizing use of white space make for an exciting look at the world of birds for preschoolers and beginning independent readers. Even without a key to identify the depicted birds, this is a winner. Luann Toth, Summit Free Public Lib . , N.J.

My two year old adores birds, and of all of our bird books, this is one of his absolute favorites. I'm not sure how much of the text he understands, but the illustrations, done in clay art, are beautiful, and he loves to identify the various species.

I don't mind reading it over and over because the poetic text stands up to intense rereadings and I love the cadence and rhythm of the text. The author has managed to emulate the careening freedom of flight by the flitting, dipping, racing style of her poetry. This is one of those books I wish we had in hardcover.

5.0 out of 5 stars A VISUAL TREAT Nov. 20 2001
Format:School & Library Binding
This book contains masterful illustrations, done in a rainbow of clay. Each page is a treat, executed so skillfully that children will be inspired to use clay to create a picture, in addition to the customary sculptures. Adults will enjoy gazing at the illustrations with children of any age. Every page features birds in a colorful setting, and they are so whimsical and attractive that you will see your feathered friends in a new way. You just can't flip hurriedly through this book, but savor each page.

5.0 out of 5 stars Birds, Birds, Birds. April 1 2002
By tvtv3
This charming little book uses alliteration, assonance, and rhyming words to describe various types of birds and how they live. The sentences are written in poetry that's cadence and structure enhances the types of birds being discussed. The claymation illustrations are playful and capture children's imagination, but without distracting from the focus of the book's lessons. A fun book to read.
