Little Kids First Board Book: Birds (board book, ages Baby-3)
Designed to be the stepping stone to the best-selling National Geographic Little Kids First Big Book series, the Little Kids First Board Book series takes similar big subjects and distills them down to the simplest nonfiction concepts for the youngest audience. Not only will readers learn about a variety of birds, but they can also find recurring shapes and patterns in the art. At the same time, adults can keep their eyes open for occasional funny commentary from the animals. With their bright and playful design, fantastic photography, clear text, and cues to encourage interactive learning, the Little Kids First Board Books take a fresh new approach in making learning about nature and science fun.
