My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I love birds and I am fascinated with feathers. All of them are so unique to the type of birds and function. I loved this book so much because it was so detailed. It brilliantly laid out and written in a way that was easy to understand. It was super engaging and the illustrations are gorgeous too. This book is just stunning from cover to cover. I have read it over several times because it is just so stunning! All bird lovers will want this book. Kids also love learning about birds and their feathers. It was a hit with the whole family!

Birds and Their Feathers (Prestel; June 2018; ISBN: 978-3791373355; Hardcover $16.65; Ages 6 and up).

The creator of The Egg returns to her avian explorations with this wondrous, charming, and informative examination of feathers.

Hailed as "a magnificent volume that offers hours of lingering pleasure... fertile ground for conversation and imagination," (Midwest Book Review) Britta Teckentrup's The Egg introduced children to one of nature's most perfect creations. Now, employing the same earth-tone coloring and delicate illustrations that have made her an enormously popular children's author, Teckentrup turns her gaze to the endlessly fascinating feather. What are they made of? Why do birds have so many of them? How do they help birds fly? And what other purpose do they serve? By providing accessible answers to these and other questions, this delightful book introduces young readers to the wonders of "plumology," while also drawing them in with enchanting illustrations. An exquisitely rendered fusion of art and science, this marvelous book satisfies young readers' natural curiosity about the world around them.

About the author: BRITTA TECKENTRUP is the author and illustrator of many beloved children's books, including the bestselling The Memory Tree, The Odd One Out, and Grumpy Cat, along with The Egg, Before I Wake Up..., Oskar Loves..., and Oskar and Mo (all by Prestel). She lives and works in Berlin.
