Look Up! Birdwatching in Your Own Backyard Children's Book
Look Up!: Bird Watching in Your Own Backyard by Annette LeBlanc Cate (Author, Illustrator). A 2014 Robert F. Sibert Honor Book. You don't have to own binoculars and know a bunch of fancy Latin names to watch birds! No matter where you live, they're in your neighborhood, just look up. This conversational, humorous introduction to bird watching encourages kids to get outdoors with a sketchbook and really look around. Quirky full color illustrations portray dozens of birds chatting about their distinctive characteristics, including color, shape, plumage, and beak and foot types, while tongue in cheek cartoons feature banter between birds, characters, and the reader (Here I am, the noble spruce grouse. In a spruce grove. Eatin' some spruce. Yep.). Interactive and enjoyable tips bring an age old hobby to new life for the next generation of bird watchers.
