This is a beautiful, slim volume noting the most prevalent water birds. It mostly highlights each bird's characteristics through detailed and colorful art work. This would be a nice introduction to water birds, but more information is needed to further understand each species.

for school-age children. Since my four-year-old grandson refused to allow me to read it to him, I read it to myself!

Jim Arnosky is both the author and illustrator of this volume for young people. The water birds are painted beautifully. The book is well worth being in any adult library.
