From the National Wildlife Federation, publishers of Ranger Rick , the popular nature magazine for kids, comes this exciting, dynamic, and wonderfully illustrated guide for young naturalists.

National Wildlife Federation's World of Birds is arranged by habitat and identifies more than 100 birds. Kim Kurki?s engaging and highly accurate illustrations give kids a true and close-up appreciation of each bird species, such as its size, shape, color, and markings, as well as its habitat, call, and behavior.

You?ll also discover what makes each bird amazing, including which is the fastest flier, which lays the biggest egg, and which spends years of its life in the water, never touching land.
