Description


Meet nature’s oddballs in author Laura Gehl and illustrator Gareth Lucas’s charming board book about some of the most unique birds in the world.
 
Backyard birds—move over! Odd Birds introduces babies and toddlers to unusual bird species, including the magnificent frigatebird with a bright red throat pouch and the California condor—the largest flying birds in North America! Gentle rhyming verses provide the comforting repetition that little ones crave, even as their minds are opened to new and fascinating creatures from around the world.
 
At the end of the book, readers will find photographs of each bird, along with more detailed factual information. The eight birds featured are the magnificent frigatebird, blue-footed booby, shoebill stork, ostrich, hoatzin, oilbird, California condor, and burrowing owl.
 
“A winning mix of illuminating facts and charming artwork—this book definitely isn’t for the birds.” —Kirkus Reviews
