FLY WITH ME is everything and anything about birds! It teaches about a bird's anatomy, their nests, and even their feathers! It also talks about the different state birds and the history of them. Finally, the stories to the back bring everything to a fun close.
I love the poems throughout the book and the pictures are beautiful. I've always loved birds and this book only makes me love them more. It is so educational and will be a perfect gift for anyone who is interested in birds. Even though I've read through it, I'll still flip through for another look at the pictures or to reread some parts.
