A boy’s fascination with birds and nature leads into a passion that will revolutionize the study of birds. I appreciated the author’s and illustrator’s notes at the end of the book at how they approached this picture book. This brief glimpse into John James Audubon will inspire readers to find out more about him.
This was a very basic biography of a now-so-well-known person, so basic in fact that the actual story text didn’t really give a clearer picture of the baker. The illustrations were cute and the endpapers include a recipe for gingerbread.
