    1. Check out more picture book reviews @ Perspective of a WriterAn alphabet of birds told in verse from Warblers to Blue-tits and Kakapos to Owls.I really liked the art but I didn't love it as I expected too I chose this book because my nephew enjoys drawing birds and the shapes should be easy for him to duplicate. None of the spreads really spoke to us except for the feather one which he drew and which we both ADORED! Honestly we DO NOT enjoy poems or stories in verse. If I had realized that this [...]


    2. * I was sent this for free from the publishers in exchange for an honest review *I really liked this one I must admit, it was lovely and beautiful and really quite a joy to read. I loved the fact that it rhymed and yet it was simple so it worked well for children, reading to children, or just anyone who appreciates playful, chirpy illustration style :) 4*s overall and definitely recommended!


    3. This alphabet book features one amazing bird after another shown in both playful and gorgeous illustrations. The book is told in rhyming couplets that feature a little information about each species of bird. The birds are exotic, featuring jacana, kakapo, and quetzal. They are mixed with backyard birds like robin, geese, nuthatches, and woodpeckers. Each one is given their own page on which to shine.The rhyming couplets create a book that has a jaunty swing to it, moving swiftly from one bird to [...]


    4. absolutely stunning book but some of the rhyming is slightly lacking. still the beauty of this picture book does make up for the stilted rhymes. *I was sent this book for an honest review



    5. Starts off strong, but the rhyming text gets weaker as it goes along. Anytime you write a themed alphabet book its success is going to rest on how you handle the difficult letters. Roussen does okay, but not great. The illustrations keep this in the 3 star range, because they are brilliant with the added feature of a very eye-catching repeating magenta.


    6. This book has a lot of potential for story time. While the rhymes are a little bit forced (v isn't a bird at all), the bright and beautiful illustrations are what really makes the book memorable. I can see where kids would really enjoy learning the names of the featured species.



    7. True to its name, a beautiful book that covers a wide variety of bird species, from domestic to wild, backyard to exotic. An ABC book told in nice flowing rhyme.



    8. Review written for and published by Portland Book Review on September 17th:Beautiful Birds is a bright and colorful hardcover children’s book. A classic alphabet learning tool, the book introduces young children to different species of birds from around the world. Some letters are only one page each, while others span two, and several letters introduce more than one bird. For example, the letter ‘K’ introduces readers to the Kakapo, and the Kiwi. The letters and their matching bird are int [...]


    9. In this stunningly illustrated introduction to the world's most beautiful birds, Jean Roussen and Emmanuelle Walker pay homage to an alphabet of birds in all their feathery fancies. From Warblers to Blue-tits and Kakapos to Owls, Roussen's playful, melodic poem is complemented beautifully by Walker's delicate illustrations.Jean Roussen is a Swiss French graphic designer and writer who dabbles in publishing from time to time.Emmanuelle Walker is an animation director and illustrator from Montreal [...]


    10. Beautiful Birds is a 12" x 9" fully illustrated "A is for" book. By this description, I mean that each letter of the alphabet has a bird associated with it. For example, "A is for albatross, the admiral of the skies. B is for bee-eaters, BEWARE any bug that flies." Each page is dedicated to one bird, with a vibrantly colored illustration, and a one-line descriptor, as seen above. As you can also see there is a bit of a rhyming scheme to this book, but a lot of the descriptors are too advanced fo [...]


    11. Next up is a book by Flying Eye [Books], which is called Beautiful Birds and it's written and illustrated by J. [Jean] Roussen and E. [Emmanuelle] Walker. This, as well, has some of the most beautiful design I've seen in a picture book. This goes alphabetically through a number of different bird species, and just every single page looks like it could be ripped out and framed. I love the dimensions; It's a very tall book and it covers a great number of birds that I hadn't heard of before and I th [...]


    12. Beautiful Birds is incredibly illustrated. The colors alone practically glow on the page (this picture doesn’t do it justice). The birds are so sculptural and really reminiscent of Charley Harper. The text is clever and draws some really interesting connections as well as introduces some unusual, but beautiful, birds.I put this on our first grade list because it is a concept alphabet book and they study birds in the spring. However I first got the book for my own daughter who was so taken with [...]


    13. Away from the sights and noise of a city, in the early morning or early evening if you pause and listen, a springtime symphony swirls about you. For some reason, perhaps due to the length and bitter cold of this winter, the sounds are even sweeter this year. Now, inside my home, as the sun sets low on the horizon I can hear them calling to one another. If you watch them, even in passing, they hop and stop to pick up bits of food or materials for nests. The way they flit, float and fly using the [...]


    14. Jean Roussen’s rhyming text circumnavigates the alphabet bird by bird (with a few cheats for some more difficult letters). Flow and rhythm often take a backseat in the writer’s stretch for the perfect rhyme, but little ones will probably be too busy examining the brightly colored, crisp illustrations to notice any awkwardness. Splashes of fluorescent orange highlight eyes, beaks, flowers, and more, and draw attention to the page. Some more unusual bird species are mentioned – kakapos, kiwi [...]


    15. The birds in this brightly-illustrated picture book truly are beautiful as they wing across the sky. Starting with A for albatross and ending with Z for zosteropidae, readers follow rhyming verses to learn a little bit more about birds in this ABC book. My favorite illustrations are the cockatoos; the macaw, described as "rainbows that ruffle" (unpaged); and the woodpeckers, but I'm also fond of the albatross, depicted in formation with a series of aerodynamic airplanes filling the airspace abov [...]


    16. Targeted for the Grades 1-4 group this is a stunning book that covers birds of the alphabet from A (Albatross) through -Z (Zosteropidae). Each page features a beautiful bird (or two) and a one-line rhyming phrase about the bird(s). The 4 - year old loved this book as they are studying birds in science at preschool. This one is a keeper for the permanent bookshelves (although it's one of those taller books that may require a higher shelf space. Gorgeous book - BUY IT (or at least ask your library [...]


    17. This book is simply gorgeous with fabulous illustrations. It's hard to believe it's an ABC book.I like the the authors picked out-of-the-ordinary birds to introduce kids to new kinds, like "X is for xanthocephalus," and "L is for Lyrebird". It's even cooler because the whole thing is voiced by a peacock, who proclaims himself "the most beautiful bird." The front end pages features different kinds of eggs and the back has the eggs hatched with their corresponding baby birds. Highly recommended fo [...]


    18. 5 for looks, 3 for content, so we split the difference at 4 stars. The rhymes are shaky and a little bit distracting because of that shakiness, but it is SUCH a pretty book. I would probably buy it for that, but I think I and adults LIKE me would find it pretty and interesting -- it's hard to say how a kid reader would interpret it.Still -- gorgeous.


    19. A 5 for the stunning illustrations, but a 3 for the so-so rhyming text and lack of a bird that starts with a "v." Granted, vultures aren't "beautiful", but throw it in there anyway instead of "V is for a formation that's a rare sight to see." It's not even that rare to see that!


    20. Fantastic electric illustrations! That pink! Those birds.But alas, the rhythm of the poem was uneven enough to trip me up more than once. And the ending seemed to be pasted on -- unexpected and unfun.


    21. Eye-popping, bold, bright illustrations of gorgeous birds from around the world in a book that showcases the alphabet, rhyming sounds, and fun ornithology facts. Fantastic! Fun for bird-lovers of all ages.


    22. I really wish they would've included a vulture for the letter V. They gave two birds per letter but instead of a vulture they chose the phrase "V formation." Just a small irk in an otherwise beautifully illustrated book.


    23. An alphabet book that features unique birds through rhyming couplets and beautiful illustrations. Advanced words are used to describe the birds- so this is good for a bird lover.




    24. I loved the poetry but I really loved the illustrations. An absolutely beautiful book. Highly recommend for bird lovers.
