As you begin the journey learning about birds, you open the page and there on the left page is a simple statement..... "Birds have feathers," and on the right page is a beautiful picture of the brilliant cardinal in winter. The specific bird is identified in a corner of the text page. Remember, I said they are learning in this journey... they have learned that birds have feathers and that the bird pictured is the Northern Cardinal. This continues through the book instructing in simple, concise statements for the young child.
At the end of the book is an "Afterword" with each page/illustration presented with a short but broader statement about that particular bird or illustration. I highly recommend these books as excellent for the home library, the school library, or for a gift from grandma.
