"Young naturalists will appreciate the variety of avian life rendered in Susan Stockdale's gently rhyming picture book, Bring On the Birds. Children will want to linger over the colorful images of ptarmigans, penguins, roadrunners and grouse (along with puffins, boobies, pigeons and a scarlet-bosomed frigatebird)." --Wall Street Journal
"[Bring On the Birds is] likely to draw and hold the attention even of unfledged young viewers. The images are often mesmerizing in their abstraction, inviting readers to pause and admire." --Kirkus Reviews
