Synopsis

Thunder Birds Nature's Flying Predators by Jim Arnosky

This title is suitable for children aged 6 years old and up. Acclaimed naturalist and illustrator Jim Arnosky helps birds and imaginations take glorious flight in this breathtaking nonfiction picture book with six giant gatefolds. Arnosky will draw out kids' inner explorer as he explains why there are no feathers on a vulture's head, which bird is the deep-diving champ, what makes an owl's wings perfectly silent in flight and much more. Readers can use this gorgeously illustrated book to bring the wilderness right into their rooms, or as a guide on their next expedition.
