Have You Seen Birds? - Joanne Oppenheim and Barbara Reid

Have You Seen Birds?
Joanne Oppenheim (Author)

Barbara Reid (Illustrator)
ISBN 9780439957250

This is another award-winning book by illustrator Barbara Reid and author Joanne Oppenheim. It has won the Canadian Council Children's Literature Prize, the Ruth Schwartz Children's Book Award and the Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver Canadian picture Book Award. Both
Reid and Oppenheim have won numerous other awards also.

This book looks at birds of a feather from all over the place - birds of different sizes, birds in different places, birds doing different things. Woodland birds, night birds, farm birds and city birds - it covers them all, with 35 amazing illustrations depicting 58 different species of birds wonderfully rendered in Reid's highly detailed plasticine art. This is now one my favorite Barbara Reid books.
