★ "Exceptionally detailed and uniformly accurate...the Sills succeed admirably." ―School Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW

In this simple volume, former educator and author Cathryn Sill uses clear, easy-to-understand language to teach children what birds are, what they do, and how they live.

Noted wildlife illustrator John Sill provides beautifully detailed, realistic paintings to showcase the birds' diverse and natural worlds, and an afterword inspires further learning.

About Birds is part of the Sills' award-winning About... series, ideal for casual exploration as well as for preschool and elementary science and animal life units.
