Simply and charmingly, author and elementary school teacher Cathryn Sill explains to children what birds are, what they do, and how they live. Accompanied by beautifully detailed illustrations from noted wildlife illustrator John Sill, About Birds introduces children to the world of birds, from eggs to flight, from songs to nests. It features an appendix which identifies each bird.
