Look Up! Birdwatching in Your Own Backyard
Look Up! Bird-Watching in Your Own Backyard by Annette LeBlanc Cate (Author, Illustrator) - Series: Backyard Farming
A 2014 Robert F. Sibert Honor Book. You don't have to own binoculars and know a bunch of fancy Latin names to watch birds! No matter where you live, they're in your neighborhood, just look up. This conversational, humorous introduction to bird-watching encourages kids to get outdoors with a sketchbook and really look around. Quirky full-color illustrations portray dozens of birds chatting about their distinctive characteristics, including color, shape, plumage, and beak and foot types, while tongue-in-cheek cartoons feature banter between birds, characters, and the reader (Here I am, the noble spruce grouse. In a spruce grove. Eatin' some spruce. Yep.). Interactive and enjoyable tips bring an age-old hobby to new life for the next generation of bird-watchers.
