Beautiful Birds is a delightful book that presents exquisite illustrations while introducing many diverse types of birds. The book is beautifully and elegantly written. It moves through the alphabet and engages readers by maintaining a lovely rhyme scheme throughout. Some of the vocabulary may be challenging for younger readers because of the unique names of some species of birds, but the reading experience is enjoyable because of the poetic writing. Readers will be fascinated by the irresistible colors, enchanting artwork, and tasteful text.
