Look Up! - Bird-Watching in Your Own Backyard

Author(s): Annette LeBlanc Cate (Illustrator)

Kid's Non-Fiction

A 2014 Robert F. Sibert Honor Book


You don't have to own binoculars and know a bunch of fancy Latin names to watch birds No matter where you live, they're in your neighborhood -- just look up.


This conversational, humorous introduction to bird-watching encourages kids to get outdoors with a sketchbook and really look around. Quirky full-color illustrations portray dozens of birds chatting about their distinctive characteristics, including color, shape, plumage, and beak and foot types, while tongue-in-cheek cartoons feature banter between birds, characters, and the reader ("Here I am, the noble spruce grouse. In a spruce grove. Eatin' some spruce. Yep."). Interactive and enjoyable tips bring an age-old hobby to new life for the next generation of bird-watchers.
Back matter includes a bibliography, an index, and bird-watching tips.
