Description

In addition to the many types of bird that live in the Arctic year-round, there are about one hundred species that travel seasonally to the Arctic to lay their eggs and raise their young.
In this book, young readers learn about twelve of the birds that call the Arctic home, whether that be for all or part of the year.
With a simple layout and easy-to-follow headings for each bird, this beautiful book is filled with fun, useful facts, including where to look for eggs and nests during the short Arctic summer and how to recognize each bird's call on the wind.
Because migratory birds live in the Arctic for part of the year, many of the feathered friends covered in A Children's Guide to Arctic Birds can be seen at various times of the year throughout North America.

Editorial Reviews

"Interesting for bird lovers whose homes are in temperate climes as well, especially those who might see some of these intriguing Arctic nesters in winter."


“[The art is] one of the strong points of this nonfiction book, but so are the facts provided about birds.”
