Review: 'About Birds' by Cathryn Sill

About Birds by Cathryn Sill, Illustrated by John Sill, 2013, Peachtree, $16.95, hardbound, 35 pages. Category/Genre: reference. Cover: excellent. Where we got it; publisher. Where you can get it: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books-A-Million.

Another terrific installment in the 'About . . . ' series, this one follows all kinds of birds, from robins to roadrunners to herons to hummingbirds, and tells what they all have in common . . . and some things that make them different. 

After introducing birds, the book has extra information about each of the illustrations, or plates, in case readers want to learn more. Plus there are a glossary, bibliography, and websites listed. 

If you like this one, try: About Penguins, by Cathryn Sill.
