A compendium of trivia, history, biology, and references to art, mythology, poetry, and literature for 19 different birds.
Winged Wonders is a real rara avis of a book. Basically, it’s a collection of all sorts of information related to a bunch of different birds, like the raven, the heron, the cuckoo, the falcon, and many more. There are poems, myths, historical references, and basic biological facts, all of them really compelling and quirky and fun.
What I really love about this book is how well it’s curated. Sure, you could Google any of these birds and learn a few things, but it takes real discipline and passion to put together a book that’s so readable, fascinating and valuable. I will definitely be keeping this one for the homeschooling library.
Many, many, many thanks to BlueBridge for the review copy.
