Wild Birds
By Joanne Ryder
Illustrator Susan Estelle Kwas
Publisher HarperCollins

Families living in cities and suburbs may find nature studies more difficult. A study of birds is possible no matter where you live. I prefer to start all my science units by first reading an appropriate picture book. Wild Birds by Joanne Ryder is just such a book for a study of wild birds. Wild Birds provides a colorful look at the wildlife that is just outside one little girl's home. You see the little girl using her bird guide and discovering birds everywhere. Ryder's poetry adds an extra dimension to the book. The reader gets the sense of the swirl and flutter of wings and the stillness required of a child who wants to get close to wild birds. The bird picture guide at the beginning of the book can be used to find all the varieties of birds Kwas has depicted in her colorful illustrations. These pages will inspire your children to establish their own bird feeders and bird baths and to quietly pursue a closer look at the birds in your neighborhood.
