This entertaining addition to the popular Head to Tail series is a perfect for read-aloud. It features eight fascinating birds from around the world --- including the kiwi, blue-footed booby and arctic tern --- with an additional eight birds described and illustrated in the back matter. Striking cut-paper collage illustrations by Kwanchai Moriya make the books in this series visual standouts and add to their appeal. With fun facts about each bird's special features, characteristics and habitat, this title has direct applications to the second-grade life science curriculum on the physical characteristics and habitats of living things. And the guessing game component offers a terrific opportunity for critical thinking and reasoning.
