About the Book

Supporting STEM-based learning, this fact-filled book for bird lovers ages 6–9 is the ultimate guide to nearly 150 bird species from across the globe, entertaining and educating young readers through a combination of close-up images, quirky trivia facts, quiz questions, and fascinating tidbits on everything from toucans to turkeys.

How many species of birds are in the world today? What do bird feathers and human hair have in common? Why do some bird species let ants crawl on them? Find out the answers to these questions and more in DKfindout! Birds, which features stunning wildlife photography of birds in their native environments, throughout every stage of their life cycles. Beginning with a broad overview of bird biology, this book teaches young ornithologists what makes birds different from other branches of the animal kingdom, while "fact files" provide a closer look at bird species that share particular habitats, like deserts and rain forests. From mating to migrating and everything in between, DKfindout! Birds captures the breadth of the bird world in a unique and fun way.

Vetted by educational consultants, the DKfindout! series drives kids ages 6–9 to become experts on more than 30 of their favorite STEM- and history-related subjects, whether Vikings, volcanoes, or robots. This series covers the subjects that kids really want to learn about—ones that have a direct impact on the world around them, like climate change, space exploration, and rapidly evolving technology—making learning fun through amazing images, stimulating quizzes, and cutting-edge information. The DKfindout! series is one that kids will want to turn to again and again.
