Bird Buddies is really a story within a story. Inspired by a visit to an ornithologist, Rosa writes a sweet fictional tale about a hummingbird and a chatty parrot, interweaving avian facts for added realism. Indeed, science and storytelling are not mutually exclusive.
Bird Buddies is a fun read, and full of wonderful interesting facts about birds. Creating a sense of wonder in young readers about the natural world is the first step needed to build a lifetime of support for the preservation of the wonders of life around us. Bird Buddies will help begin that process.
I highly recommend Bird Buddies. The story and illustrations are charming with real ornithological insights shared from a child’s perspective, making it easy for a child to read and understand. What a perfect gift!
This is another great children’s book by Ken Hill. I bought it for my grandson and it is perfect for him. He loves birds. It is well-written, entertaining and informative. I hope the author continues to write more of these great stories.
What I like about Bird Buddies is its easy-to-read format AND that the content is a treasure trove of fascinating information regarding birds! I bought several copies, because I know that any child would appreciate the way the author weaves together a story about birds and also reminds us of the importance of being there for one another!
