April Sayre’s Book Bird, Bird, Bird: A Chirping Chant

Yellow-bellied Sapsucker,

picture that!

Chachalaca, Chickadee,

Chat, Chat, Chat!

Kingbird, Kingfisher,

Kinglet, Kite,

Frigatebird, my word,

what a sight!

Bird, Bird, Bird is follow-up to the wildly popular Trout, Trout, Trout: A Fish Chant celebrates American birds and bird diversity in general through a wild chant of their common names. This nonfiction text—illustrated whimsically by Gary Locke, an extraordinary illustrator—will make you laugh. Backmatter includes fun facts about each kind of bird featured.
