For the budding birders in your life!

How to Find a Bird by Jennifer Ward and Diana Sudyka


"Enticing and beautiful. The book concludes with a spread of “tools and tips” for becoming a bird watcher and even a citizen scientist."
- The Horn Book, starred review

HOW TO FIND A BIRD is a Hornbook Fanfare Best Book of 2020!

"A thoroughly charming introduction to bird behavior, and Sudyka's resplendent watercolor and gouache illustration fill the pages with movement and onomatopoeic songs. Ward easily conveys a real excitement and admiration for our avian companions and makes bird-watching feel incredibly accessible for readers who may find themselves wandering in the woods or simply staring out their windows. Back matter includes some wonderfully helpful tips and resources and the vivid introduction to the subject is sure to make a budding ornithologist out of any young reader."

- Booklist

"Ward, author of many nature titles including Mama Dug a Little Den, illustrated by Steve Jenkins (2018), offers good suggestions for bird-finding at any age. Move slowly and quietly. Try to blend in. Look up, down, and also straight ahead. And, finally, 'the best way to find a bird' close your eyes and listen."  - Kirkus Reviews
