An oversize pop-up book, Birds of a Feather uses silhouettes and life-size representations to explore the world of birds. Each flap lifts to present a picture of a bird with a tid-bit of information about habitat, behaviour or appearance. Similar to a 1000 strange facts book, Birds of a Feather’s information is not detailed, but more of a jumping off point for inquiry. We learn that a flamingo’s feathers only turn pink when they are adults and that mockingbirds learn over 200 songs in their life, but not why these phenomena happen. The illustrations are bright and life-like, but not deeply detailed. Students will love lifting the flaps to discover information that they can use to amaze the grownups at the dinner table.
