Weird Birds features: Beautiful photographs that show the birds in sharp, clear detail; Informative captions that provide fascinating details about the lives of these intriguing creatures.

Reviews

From the Andean Cock-of-the-Rock to the Secretary bird to Atlantic Puffins and Asian Paradise Flycatchers, Earley's birds and descriptions are highly amazing.--Lee Littlewood Lodi News-Sentinel (11/04/2014)

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.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
