Welcome to the Bird Show! Award-winning author-illustrator Susan Stockdale offers a front-row seat to a vibrant fashion show starring the world’s most diverse and spectacular birds.
★ “Stunning… Wonderful for reading aloud and sharing.” —School Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW
Stockdale’s background as a textile designer and award-winning nonfiction author-illustrator are immediately evident in this energetic, rhyming celebration of pattern, color, and nature.
Bird Show features a variety of fashionable feathered creatures—from the Mandarin Duck and the Grey-Crowned Crane to the Royal Flycatcher and Golden Pheasant. Their feathers may be simple and solid or speckled, striped, or spotted. They may “wear” a jacket, a scarf, an apron, a headdress. And just like people, each one contributes to our beautiful world, made more vibrant by their diversity.
Little ornithologists and fashionistas will marvel at the book’s color and style, and an afterword provides more information about each species as well as an entertaining pattern matching game.
