Product Description:

Most children are intrigued by birds because of their quick, hurried movements, and especially by their ability to fly. John James Audubon was a child that was enthralled by birds and their behaviors. Eventually, he would become known as the best painter of birds, capturing their natural, various behaviors from flying to preening. Born in France, Audubon was sent to Pennsylvania by his father to escape Napoleon's war. While there, his fascination with birds grew, and he desired to capture the beautiful birds on paper with his artistic abilities. But the young artist wondered one thing: Where did the birds go during the winter, and did the same ones return in the spring? With colorful and various illustrations, you will enjoy exploring this book as you discover Audubon's key to discovering the answer. hc. John

We have been learning about birds - mainly the ones that we see in our backyard. This book is challenging for my 7 and 9 year old, but they are mostly happy when they finish drawing a bird. It is very detailed.

I teach the Charlotte Mason method and this is a great introduction to a very talented artist whose pictures we plan to study for a term this year.

A must buy!
If you have a bird lover, or even someone interested, this is a great book! I definitely recommend it. We purchased this, among other books, to go along with our bird study and immediately feel in love with it.
