      I'm going to check this right back in and send it back to the owning library without taking it home. I'm a little sad about that. But the book doesn't have the official name of all the birds. I know a more of these than the fish book "Fabulous Fishes" by the same author. My son is 2 1/2. He's exceptionally interested in the actual names of things. Giving him a generic answer won't do. I don't know the names of many of the birds and short of putting a sticky note on the page so I know the name of [...]

      This is a bright and bold picture book about birds. Written in simple, rhyming text, the book is a celebration of the diversity of birds around the world. It shows birds of different sizes, colors and habitats. Some are active, others sitting, and still others hang upside down. There is a section at the end of the book that has more information on each bird as well as a list of nonfiction titles about birds for children to explore. The text here is so simple that it glides past. The rhythm and r [...]

      This book is perfect for a young child interested in animals and nature. Between the bright and detailed illustrations and the melodic rhyming scheme, this book should keep a child's interest for a long time.The text is simple enough for children and any unclear words are illustrated clearly in the text (e.g. "swooping birds" is complimented with a swooping owl). The flow of the words is very natural. The words can almost be sung as easily as they can be read. Susan Stockdale's interest in scien [...]

      "Bring on the Birds" by Susan Stockdale is an amazing candidate for the 2012 Caldecott Award. I chose to read this book because the cover alone really caught my attention. I think the amazing illustrations really would compete well for this award. The book is extremely catchy and the rhyming adds a more "wow" factor to the overall read. I really enjoyed looking at the illustrations and found them extremely colorful, bright, and appealing. This book not only would appeal to younger aged students [...]

      A few weeks ago, a catalog from "Peachtree Publishers came across my desk. I was enticed to read several of the picture books from this publisher and so far this is my favorite. It is a glorious introduction to birds of the world. Even the very young will be engaged by the colorful illustrations and the rhyming text that celebrates, "Swooping birds, whooping birds, birds with puffy chests" and so many more. At the end of the book is a page that lists all the birds in the book, some of their habi [...]

    14. Ken Martin says:

      This nonfiction book Bring On the Birds was very informational and colorful. The colors in this book are going to grab the attention of readers very easily. The information in this book is really great it explains so much about so many different birds. I think that some students will relate to some of the birds and understand them. This book could be used to help teach students about writing in a descriptive way. This book describes so much in so much detail it really paints a great picture. Bri [...]

    15. Heather says:

      Fabulous rhyme and gorgeous illustrations work together well in this book. The simple rhymes and the bright pictures would make this an excellent addition to story time - particularly a bird-themed story time. Young bird enthusiasts should also enjoy this on their own, and will appreciate the short descriptions of each illustrated bird in the back matter. Ms. Stockdale has selected both familiar and unique birds, so young researchers may find themselves wishing to learn more about some of the bi [...]

      My five-year-old son picked out this book from our library this week. I didn't expect much from this book; the title doesn't exactly "sing", but it is so worth a read. The text is simple and not really anything special, which makes it perfect. This book is (almost) all about the illustrations. And the illustrations are spectacular. The illustration are vibrant. The illustrations are phenomenal. The illustrations "sing".

    17. Bridget R. Wilson says:

      What I thought: I think I’ve found another author/illustrator that I like as much as Cathryn & John Sill. The simple text and colorful illustration combine to entertain and educate children about birds. The afterward provides just enough information to whet the kids’ appetites for more bird books. It was hard to pick a favorite illustration, but I really like the fluffy crests. Story Time Themes: Birds

    18. Barbara says:

      Birds of every size, shape, and hue are celebrated in rhyming text and brightly-colored illustrations. The book is fun to read aloud and examine for the many different types of birds that are highlighted. It made me want to look at it again and again and stop to think about the birds in the pictures. Backmatter includes an afterword that gives additional information about each bird and its habitat.

    19. Maggie says:

      2012 ALA Notable BookPerfect for story times with littles. The rhyme and pacing in this book are done exceptionally well, boiling down the big idea of lots of different types of birds into simple comparisons with beautiful, colorful illustrations. The back has a photo glossary of the birds depicted as well as further reading to learn more about birds.

    20. Mymcbooks says:

      What a great way to introduce readers to the exotic and familiar birds in s simple rhyming text, with vibrant and exciting colors. Towards the end of the story, Susan Stockdale gives an educational background and descriptive text of the different type of birds she listed in her book. A must have for classroom teaching.

    21. Sarah Mckelvy says:

      Pros: The book shows the wide variety of birds; it flowed nicely. At the end of the book, it states that, "All of them have feathers, and are all hatched from eggs."Cons: Even though the illustrations were colorful, I think Susan Stockdale should have focused on more detail with the drawings to show the magnificence of birds.

    22. Jill says:

      This non-fiction bird book would make a nice complement to picture books for a storytime theme of birds. The text isn't overly complicated and the book covers many different kinds of birds from owls to penguins.

    23. Elaine Bearden says:

      preS-gr2/3Cut paper illustrates this rhymed book about all different kinds of birds. At the end, more detail is next to thumb nails of the original pages. Good for storytime. Could use it with Nothing Like a Puffin, though I just did that one for feet.:)

    24. Leah says:

      Lilting rhyme, colourful illustrations, lots of new birds to learn about and some ones that children will already know. This book invites the audience to tell you the name of the birds. Will try in storytime.

    25. Janet says:

      Since I am a bird watcher I was prepared to like this title more than I did. It does convey very very basic facts about the birds pictured. The illustration does not do justice to the colors of this bird.

    26. Molly says:

      It was alright. This might be better for a parent reading to their kids, instead of a large group. The flow gets interrupted by explaining what a blue-footed booby is, and then getting over the shrieks of laughter.

    27. Christine Mancini says:

      Wonderful illustrations!
