Birds and Their FeathersBook - 2018
"The feather -- at once fragile and strong, versatile and beautiful -- is one of nature's most ingenious constructions. With charming illustrations by Britta Teckentrup and a wealth of fascinating facts, this book tells the story of birds and their feathers for young readers. From iridescent feathers to feathers that sing; from the stately plumage of peacocks to the plumes of tiny hummingbirds; from the feathers of ancient myth to those that inspired human flight; there are delightful feathery stories here for all. The feather is a bond between nature and art, and a connection between earth and heaven." -- Back cover.
