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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular Nov. 15 2009
This is another award-winning book by illustrator Barbara Reid and author Joanne Oppenheim. It has won the Canadian Council Children's Literature Prize, the Ruth Schwartz Children's Book Award and the Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver Canadian picture Book Award. Both Reid and Oppenheim have won numerous other awards also.

This book looks at birds of a feather from all over the place - birds of different sizes, birds in different places, birds doing different things. Woodland birds, night birds, farm birds and city birds - it covers them all, with 35 amazing illustrations depicting 58 different species of birds wonderfully rendered in Reid's highly detailed plasticine art. This is now one my favorite Barbara Reid books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Have You Seen Birds Aug. 11 2009
Have you seen birds?
This is an absolutely delightful book. It is a book to treasure and keep forever. We can read it over and over again to our grandson, and he loves it! The illustrations by Barbara Reid are beautiful, and works of art in themselves.
