|With their colorful feathers, beautiful songs, power of flight, and dinosaur ancestry, birds are truly astonishing creatures. But did you know that the huge variety of known species includes daring acrobats, inconsiderate noisemakers, ruthless hunters, wonderful swimmers, and blazing runners? Or that the tiniest bird in the world measures just two inches long? Beautifully illustrated by Olivia Cosneau, Birds of the World introduces aspiring ornithologists to these and other fun facts through a range of coloring activities, removable stickers, and a short quiz. In the process, children learn about the rich variety of birds living in our world, including nightingales, swallows, hummingbirds, pelicans, penguins, parrots, toucans, and flamingos, among others.|

Editorial ReviewsThe New York Times Book Review :
"These are the rare activity books that can hold their own on the quirky, information-packed writing and exquisite artwork (reminiscent of midcentury American illustrator Charley Harper). Once the kids have absorbed a few facts, they'll be ready to go crazy with the irresistible glossy stickers (100 or so in each book) and their attendant sticker projects."
