“All of them dress in their own special way,
and put on a fashion show every day!
Welcome to the Bird Show, showcasing nature's most dazzling colors, diverse patterns, and fashionable feathered features!
Birds may be one color or many. Their feathers may be simple and solid or speckled, striped, or spotted. They may "wear" a jacket, a scarf, an apron, a headdress. But just like people, each one contributes to our beautiful world, made more vibrant by their diversity.
Bird Show celebrates both familiar and exotic birds with colorful, detailed portraits and energetic, rhyming text. An afterword provides more information about each species and offers an entertaining pattern matching game.
