Loved this one for a lot of reasons...the quirky flat illustrations, the way the lift-the-flaps bring the reader into the story as a birdwatcher along with the characters, the way the birds in the tree on the last page reward careful readers with a chance to identify them, the way things are explained (binoculars make "objects in the distance look bigger" and "The hat you see is called a crest."), the way that real-life difficulties are acknowledged (it's hard to use binoculars well; it's easy to misidentify birds when you're just starting out; it's frustrating when you don't see the bird you want to). Last but not least, it's a great model of how talking with children can build their vocabulary, and background knowledge.

Also, even though I just made a set of felt birds for storytime, I'm tempted to make another set using these illustrations as patterns. ( )
