"Exceptionally detailed and uniformly accurate...the Sills succeed
admirably." School Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW
"Fifteen exquisite, scrupulously accurate watercolors of birds in their habitats are captioned by a deceptively simple text...An excellent concept book that takes its young audience seriously while skillfully providing the basics of an important subject." Kirkus Reviews
"The full-color illustrations by wildlife artist John Sill are so lifelike that one almost expects the birds to fly off the pages...a wonderful visual introduction..." Booklist
