Whose Beak is This? is a small ‘pocket’ book that can be easily carried around by youngsters interested in identifying their local New Zealand native birds. Readers will love the introduction to this book with its descriptive background settings and language that describe aspects of what different beaks look like.
The leading question of ‘Whose beak is this?’ with a wonderfully illustrated picture in a circular shape, giving the effect of a spotlight, has the reader guessing which bird the beak belongs to. By turning the page, the reader is rewarded with a full picture of the bird as well as a snippet of factual information on the beak. They are also given the birds’ names in te reo Māori.
This is a rich and informative book for people who enjoy exploring their local bush walks and learning more about our very diverse bird life.
