A delightful collection of short stories each based on a specific bird species of India. It overflows with nature facts about birds, their habitat and behaviour, all presented in an engaging anecdotal fashion.

The characters are often named based on their local names which adds to the charm of the tales. The stories themselves are a very easy read and will appeal to a wide range of readers from the very young to older children. The author’s tremendous knowledge base and the deep urge to share it with kids, comes through in every page.

The section on “Interesting Tidbits” that follows every chapter in the book is invaluable even for seasoned nature lovers and teachers.

The illustrations complement each story or poem.

This book is a must have for any parent or teacher interested in awakening young eyes, minds and hearts to the wonders of Mother Nature and to the amazing variety of birds of the Indian sub-continent.
