The Lovereading4Kids comment

A delightfully illustrated picture book about garden birds that will appeal to families with young children. Each bird is introduced on a right-hand page in an illustration where it is partly obscured or turned away from the viewer. The text gives some clues and invites readers to guess the bird's identity. The reader then turns the page to find out more.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
