“A loud and colorful romp through the alphabet with birds and their calls.”
“It would be great for a young aspiring birder, as well as for the young children who would love to gaze at the vibrant illustrations. A fun read aloud!”

“Photosythesizy is just one of the many fun descriptions.”
“Wow, the images in this book are breathtaking, the kids and I have literally looked at this five times in a row!”
