A simple, appealing book about birds from an artistic, imaginative standpoint. The first part of the book talks about their physical characteristics in simple terms. The last half talks about them from a "what if.." point of view. For example:

"If birds made marks with their tail feathers when they flew,
think what the sky would look like."
(The illustrations show bird "contrails" on that page.)

The illustrations are perfect for the text. They are bright, bold paintings that are almost child-like in their simplicity. My girls loved the book.
