Reviews

A veteran birder invites young readers to look for the birds around them....Ward makes clear why birds are where they are. Some are feeding or nesting on the ground; some are snacking or splashing in the water; some are high in the sky; others perch on wires or feed in your own backyard. Sudyka's opaque watercolors are as engaging as the text....An afterword for older readers or caregivers provides good suggestions and further resources. Bird-finding made easy and attractive.--Kirkus Reviews "May 1, 2020"
Beautiful and fascinating birds exist all around, according to Ward's new guide on amateur ornithology....Ward, an avian enthusiast, advises readers to look on the ground, try to detect camouflaged birds, and remain still and quiet to hear bird sounds. Sudyka's illustrations are stunning and detailed. Each bird is labeled, and the sounds the birds make swoop across the page in varied fonts. The text itself is simple and engaging, and Ward's passion for birds and love of nature are apparent. VERDICT This brief and visually captivating title will inspire readers to get outside and watch birds.-Kaitlin ­Malixi, Kensington Health Sciences ­Academy, Philadelphia--School Library Journal "6/1/20"
