Reviews

"Fifteen exquisite, scrupulously accurate watercolors of birds in their habitats are captioned by a deceptively simple text...An excellent concept book that takes its young audience seriously while skillfully providing the basics of an important subject."
"Exceptionally detailed and uniformly accurate...the Sills succeed admirably."
"The full-color illustrations by wildlife artist John Sill are so lifelike that one almost expects the birds to fly off the pages...a wonderful visual introduction..."
