Birds by Kevin Henkes

This book about birds was simple but neat. All from a little girl's perspective who is observing them. It talks about the colors of birds and different size birds but the thing I really loved about birds is when she imagines what the sky might look like if bird's tails could paint or what the clouds would look like as birds. Those pages in particular caught me off guard and struck me as not the normal bird book even though many elements were normal. It was a fun read with my kids and the pictures are very bright and colorful.
