Feathers for Lunch

by Lois Ehlert

Voyager Books 1996

Ages: 3 to 5

Topic: Books You'll Want to Give as Gifts to Everyone

One of my favorite read aloud books, this story begins with "Oh, Oh. door's open just a crack?" and Caldecott artist and designer has just drawn a long tale on the first page. Already, the children wonder whose tail is that? What is the lunch that got away?

A first look at the beautiful backyard birds will intrigue all children in this well told tale. There is a checklist of all 12 birds on the back flap of the cover as well as important information about each species at the end of the rhyming story. An inspiring introduction to bird watching. (Also available in big book format).
