Staff Reviews

Learn about birds of all shapes and sizes from all of the world. This book is so fun with clever rhymes and detailed illustrations. It will have you all flying around the room afterwards, and naming birds from the car or kitchen window.

— Petra


From the author and illustrator of If I Were a Whale, comes this colorful, rhyming board book that playfully features birds found in Alaska, the Pacific Northwest, and beyond.

Toddlers will love this fun introduction to birds, in this beautifully illustrated board book that shares facts about these amazing animals in an imaginative way.

If I were a bird
you know what I'd try?
Flying wing tip to wing tip
in a forest flyby!

I could be an ebony raven,
wind lifting my wings,
tumbling past treetops,
upside down of all things.
