Every Day Birds

Twenty common North American birds each get their own page with a line about their habits and a gorgeous paper cut illustration by Dylan Metrano. Amy Ludwig VanDerwater‘s poem is repeated in a double page spread at the end, and there’s an author’s note and mini field guide included. Every Day Birds is a great nonfiction read aloud, sure to garner the interest of young ones.

  1. This is great! I love birds and think that sharing information about birds to young children will help them appreciate birds too. Maybe they’ll grow up to love them as much as we do!
    I wrote a children’s rhyming picture book called Little Birdie Grows Up. It’s about a little blue bird that grows up and leaves the nest. It’s fiction and just for fun, but pulls at your heart strings as he says good bye.
