Description:

Young naturalists meet sixteen birds in this elegant introduction to the many uses of feathers. A concise main text highlights how feathers are not just for flying.

A scrapbook design showcases life-size feather illustrations.

Alexis's Thoughts: 

I liked when the ducks have feathers to swim.  I also liked the illustrations.  I wasn't too happy with the beginning but overall liked the book.
