"Swooping birds,
whooping birds,
birds with puffy chests.
Dancing birds,
diving birds,
birds with puffy chests."

Bring On the Birds introduces young readers to both exotic and familiar birds in energetic, rhyming text and richly textured, colorful illustrations. A picture glossary identifies each animal and tells a little bit about it and where it lives.
