A few weeks ago I received the book Breathtaking Birds (part of the Marvels of Creation series) from New Leaf Press. This book is the perfect size for children to hold and look at themselves. (It’s 8 X 8 • Casebound • 80 pages) Supergirl has carried it all around the house and flipped through it over and over again. I’m pretty sure she’s taken it to bed with her as well. It’s the gorgeous full color photographs of the birds that have captured her attention.
The book begins with an introduction and ends with a section on Intelligent Design. In between the reader learns about 30 different birds.
Each bird has a two page spread. The left hand page is a full page photo of the bird. The right hand page contains several paragraphs of engaging text. Also included on the right hand page is a short “Fact Box”.
I love this book! I love flipping through the pages and seeing the photos. There is just enough information in the text to satisfy my Supergirl and yet on the other hand it merely whets my appetite and inspires me to want to learn more about these amazing creatures. Though we’ve been just reading through the book for fun, I plan on using it as part of our science program while studying birds and flying creatures!
