Explore the world of birds with this highly-illustrated children’s atlas. Which bird migrates the furthest? How do birds find a mate? What can we do to help endangered birds? The Bird Atlas answers all these questions and more.
It takes children on a tour, continent by continent, to meet the birds of the world. Within each section, the book travels through different biomes, such as mountains, deserts, and rivers; and specific regions, from the Mediterranean to the Everglades, Galapagos, and Himalayas. The Bird Atlas is packed with beautiful, life-like illustrations of birds from all over the world, with maps showing precisely where they are found. There are many books that can tell you toucans live in the Amazon rainforest, but this book shows where in the vast habitat you could spot the species. Every continent is introduced with an overview of the ecology, climate, and landscape; and the typical and record-breaking birds that live there.
