Publisher's Summary

The Burgess Bird Book for Children (1919) is a classic nature book by Thornton Burgess, who introduces young listeners to the subject of bird life by means of a series of interviews within a story. Peter Rabbit and Jenny Wren interview Slaty the Junco, Redwing the Blackbird, Melody the Wood Thrush, Spooky the Screech Owl, and many other common birds to learn about their appearance, their eating, mating and nesting habits, and their songs and calls. The text remains popular as an exceptional combination of information and entertainment.

Update?

We were loving this book, but suddenly the sound stopped working. My other books work just fine. I will change my review when the issue is resolved.

great book--too bad narrator sounds unengaged

Its too bad the narrator didn't read the book once through so he could communicate through his voice where the story is going
