This introduction to birds explains what birds are, and looks closely at their bodies to demonstrate how they fly, feed, communicate, reproduce and raise their offspring. Young readers will discover familiar and fascinating birds from all around the world and examine feathers, beaks, eggs and nests. Projects encourage children to attract birds to feed and nest, to observe different types of birds and what they do and find out about conservation and the environment.show more
