Count backward from ten as you search for hidden birds in this seek-and-find picture Book. Delicate artwork, a focus on counting, and an engaging treasure hunt will entice fans of Bill Martin Jr's Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and Steve Light's Have You Seen My Dragon?

With different species of birds and other forest animals hiding in the trees and bushes, there is something new to discover on every page. Patience is rewarded as readers learn to count backward from ten, meet new birds, and learn about the diverse ecosystem of the forest. Beautiful watercolor art, a playful counting text, and a search-and-find theme will inspire children and parents to return to Bird Watch again and again.

Our Thoughts:

Bird Watch is a fantastic picture book that teaches you about ten beautiful birds you may encounter in your very own yard! You just have to slow down and take the time to look! 

We countdown from ten as we are introduced to ten lovely birds, from the itty bitty chickadee to the great owl, and must find them hidden among the plants and trees. There are a few insects to find as well! 

The watercolor illustrations are beautiful and make this fun look-and-find extra life-like. Could you spot all ten black-capped chickadees in the blackberry bushes and in the trees? Most of the birds blend easily into their natural surroundings which makes this a nice little challenge but it wasn't too difficult for my four-year-old. 

There's also educational information at the end of the book about bird-watching - or 'birding' - and extra information about the ten birds it features!
