School Library Journal - 11/01/2018 PreS-Gr 1—Combining a guessing game with quick facts, this book invites children to answer a series of questions matching avian characteristics with the corresponding species. Moriya's cut-paper collage is made up of stunning, brilliant colors—intricately done. Each bird is chosen for its distinct features, including the owl, hummingbird, eagle, kiwi, tern flamingo, blue-footed booby, and peacock. After each question is answered, Roderick supplies facts about that body part. She provides just the right amount of information to pique readers' interest. During storytimes, younger children can play the guessing game, while older kids could be presented with the more factual text. Back matter consists of eight additional feathered creatures with just a sentence about each. As an addition to the juvenile nonfiction collection, the art and text will encourage readers to pursue more information about the birds pictured. VERDICT Versatile for storytime. An easy pick for most libraries.—Nancy Call, formerly at Santa Cruz Public Libraries, Aptos, CA - Copyright 2018 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
