A Bird Is a Bird
Birds come in all sizes. Some are small like the superb starling. Some are huge like an ostrich. Some birds are plain, and some are fancy. But, one thing is true of all birds: they have beaks to help them catch fish, or peck, or gather nectar. Another thing that is true of all birds is they have two wings, and wings can help them fly and glide, or swim and dive. Birds all start out in an egg. It might be in a nest in a tree, or on the ground. But, other animals have those same attributes. A platypus has a beak, flies have wings, and snakes start out as eggs. So, what is it that makes a bird a bird?
Children are curious about everything, but they are especially curious about animals. They ask a million questions and love to find the answers in beautiful books. Lizzy Rockwell, the author and illustrator, has done a wonderful job with this beautiful book that lays out the case for birds in straight-forward language, simple enough for very young children without being condescending. The text is fun, and the illustrations are detailed and lifelike in this thoroughly satisfying picture book.
