Have you ever wondered what birds might be thinking? Have you ever wondered what birds might be saying? Birds With Words II, the follow-up book to Birds With Words, welcomes its readers into the imaginative world of what real birds might be thinking or saying if we could communicate in a shared language. The twelve story poems and artistic photographs bring the book's feathered characters to life. The bird's comical antics frequently offer "soft lessons" in the stories' plots and resolutions. A bird identification guide is included at the end of the book to help reinforce bird recognition.
