Fun and fact filled, Bird-acious takes an info-taining look at our feathered friends, exploring a range of interesting bird species and their behaviors. And that’s not all. The book comes packaged with a real owl pellet that kids can dissect to get an up-close look at what birds eat and which body parts they can’t digest. Awesome!
Research Notes
“When editor Sarah Parvis offered me the opportunity to write a book that would be sold with a real owl pellet and instructions for dissecting it, I was 100 percent on board. After all, this is a book I would have loved as a child.

I’ve written lots of books about birds, so it was a blast to revisit my research and find the most fascinating facts. I also gleaned recent magazine and science journal articles for fresh tidbits that would truly delight young readers.”
