Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 4-This lush cocoa-table book is atlas-size and dependent on its elegant graphics. The heavy pages are designed with flaps, pop-ups, and even interlocking jigsaw-puzzle-type pieces. A silhouette of a crowned crane lifts to show the colorful whole, with a note that the birds dance while courting. A cockatoo profile lifts to show the bird in toto, with a note that some are thought to be extinct in the wild. Colorful wings lift one by one across a spread to disclose the bird beneath. Flaps for a multitude of speckled eggs lift to tell readers who they belong to, with a pertinent fact about each species. Most challenging of all are a series of four pages of strips that, when matched properly, present six different birds. Most species covered in the book are European, African, or Asian and not likely to be seen in North America. Because of its heft, the book is unwieldy and needs sturdy bracing for young hands to hold. All that aside, this is a handsome, polished work, rich in style, luxurious in color, and certainly a feast for the eyes.-Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NYα(c) Copyright 2011.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Z Hayes HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on March 3, 2013
Format: Hardcover
My eight-year-old daughter and I came across this beautiful book at our library and we had such a fun time browsing through it that we determined our home library deserved a copy of its very own. The book is over sized and quite heavy so the best way to peruse it is to lay it on something flat for easy browsing. We placed it on the carpet and lay down to read it.

There's such treasures to discover within the pages of this book. There are over 40 birds hiding behind the flaps here and the author-illustrators have done an excellent job in hiding the birds. It was fun for example to look at the outside flap and guess what bird could possibly be hiding behind the flap based on the cover outside the flap. Each bird has a short description of a unique feature, for example, under the entry for the Grey crowned cranes, it states, "Grey crowned cranes dance, bow, and jump when courting a mate."

The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous and the designs for the flaps are ingenious. One of our favorites was the page with flaps that depicted the different colored feathers for a particular species of bird. When one lifts the flap, a full-color, vibrant illustration of a bird greets the reader and there's a brief fact about the particular bird. My daughter loves the pages where all the flaps resemble eggs of different shapes and colors and when the flaps are lifted, each flap reveals a pop-up of the bird that hatches from that egg!

Another ingenious design was the puzzle flaps that open to reveal illustrations of two beautiful owls, the Barn Owl and the Eurasian Eagle-Owls. Both my daughter and I were sorry to see this book end and only wished there were many more flaps within that would reveal even more treasures. Perhaps there will be another book? One can only hope! This is a wonderful picture book that will enchant readers of all ages.

I bought this book for my nephew who loves birds. He is really enjoying it. There are many flaps to lift inside that reveal information about the birds. However, it is not a toddler type lift the flap book.

I like this book - thanks to the variety of birds included, as well as the different types of 'pop-up' activity. ie, birds behind egg shells, large fold-outs, etc. the info/ facts about the birds seems right up the alley for my 5 year old
I would give it 5 stars, except that the quality isn't as good as I was expecting. the paper and folded sections are not as heavy paper as I thought it would be, so don't know how well it will hold up. also in the quality of the paper, there are some sheets that are black on both sides, but the black is a little flaky/ scratching off and you can see the white paper starting to come through. I am not in printing/ graphic design so I don't know how to describe the better way to do it to get the page to be black all the way through. maybe that is nit-picky but as a book that comes across as trying to be a unique design, it seems poorly executed.

For kids, it's easy to trun the page and they love to play with it. Specially about the owl puzzle, they loved the idea

I did not realize how big this book would be but when I opened it, my annoyance went away and I was enthralled- as was my 6 year old daughter- with the wonderful shapes, pictures and facts that it reveals. After one viewing- where she did not even get all the way through- my daughter went to school the next day and wrote a 5 page story just about Eurasian Eagle Owls and Barn Owls, stating interesting facts about them (eye sight, predatory behaviors, silent flying) and she came home wanting to pick up more facts to embellish her story! And this is a girl who normally just writes about princesses! The book can be browsed, read cover to cover, used as a reference. It is really a wonderful and artistic way to engage children with information.

This oversize book is an bird playground for kids. There are cutouts and flaps hiding either birds or facts about them. It is pretty well put together which is a concern for a book of this type. That said if you want it to last a long time it would be best to either give to a slightly older child or supervise time with the book. My daughter who is 51/2 LOVES this book! There is another book from the same team called, "Out of Sight" which is also fun but not as complex or exciting as this title. Very clever and informative book. I will be getting extra copies to give away at Christmas time.

This book is truly gorgeous, with amazing, brilliant illustrations and loads of interesting facts about the many birds featured. Lift the gorgeous closeup wing flaps to find who the wings belong to and something cool about them--"Bohemian waxwings have a sweet tooth!..." Look under the life-size eggs to find whose egg is whose (and, again, learn something about each bird). Match up multiple flaps to "make" six different birds. And more. My four- and seven-year old daughters are in love! I am too.

What a beautiful book! It's tough to tell who likes it more: the kids I gave it to or their parents. The illustrations are stunning. There's just about the right level of information and text -- maybe more than really young kids want but enough to keep their parents engaged while reading it aloud. And as lovely as the content is, the physical book is a delight, with cutouts and pop-ups on heavy, durable stock, and top-quality printing.
