Bring on the Birds by Susan Stockdale

Summary from Dust jacket via amazon.com: Birds come in all sorts of interesting shapes, sizes, and colors and many of them can do amazing things as well. Can you imagine...Dancing birds, Diving birds, Hanging birds, Hiding birds...They're all real!

What I thought: I think I’ve found another author/illustrator that I like as much as Cathryn & John Sill. The simple text and colorful illustration combine to entertain and educate children about birds. The afterward provides just enough information to whet the kids’ appetites for more bird books. It was hard to pick a favorite illustration, but I really like the fluffy crests.
