Horn Book Review

Throughout the year, young Riki enjoys watching birds. He constructs a birdhouse, prepares special feed, assists with nest building, and tends to sunflower plants ("the birds love them and he does too"). Gouache illustrations enhanced with color copies of photographs include borders that incorporate facts and pictures. Appended resources include birdhouse building and installation plans and a "Bird Food Cupcakes" recipe. Websites. (c) Copyright 2010.
