Paddle Perch Climb: Bird Feet are Neat

Laurie Ellen Angus (author) Laurie Ellen Angus (illustrator)

Publisher: Dawn Publications ISBN: 9781584696216

Meet the feet that help birds eat! You can learn a lot about a bird just by looking at its feet. The size, shape, and type give you important clues about where a bird lives, how it moves, and what it eats. Discover seven birds, each with a different type of foot, including a roadrunner with strong legs and feet running across the desert to snag a lizard for lunch, a cardinal with flexible toes perching on a branch to pick berries, and a heron with long legs and toes wading through a river to search for fish. Bright, bold illustrations and simple text invite children to guess what birds will be revealed on successive pages. But look out! Predators are lurking, and they’re hungry, too! "Fun Foot Facts," food chains, bird watching tips, and more are presented in Explore More for Kids, Teachers, and Parents in the back of the book.
