The Boy Who Drew Birds: A Story of John James Audubon
A wonderful book about a boy who loved the out-of-doors, a boy who believed in studying birds in nature. In the fall of 1804, this boy was determined to learn if the small birds nesting near his Pennsylvania home really would return the following spring, thus pioneering a technique that remains essential to our understanding of bird migration through today. Capturing the early passion of America’s greatest painter of birds, this story will leave young readers listening intently for the call of birds large and small near their own homes. For children ages 5 to 7.
