A joyfully written celebration of birds and imaginative play from an award-winning author-and-illustrator team. 

Introducing an array of beautiful birds to young readers, Ivy Bird is a celebration of the natural world. Perfect for reading aloud, children will love the search-and-find element of the book, its bright illustrations, and the exuberant story. A non-fiction element, two pages bursting with colorful bird illustrations, encourages readers to seek out birds in their own backyards.
