You’re invited to the Bird Show! Award-winning author-illustrator Susan Stockdale welcomes readers to a beautiful fashion show starring some of the world’s most spectacular birds.
Birds may be one color or many. Their feathers may be simple and solid or speckled, striped, or spotted. They may “wear” a jacket, a scarf, an apron, a headdress. But just like people, each one contributes to our beautiful world, made more vibrant by their diversity.
Amateur ornithologists of all ages will marvel at the gorgeous birds in this colorful picture book that brings these creatures, both familiar and exotic, to life with remarkable portraits and energetic, rhyming text. An afterword provides more information about each species and offers an entertaining pattern matching game.
