about this item

It’s early morning in a swamp. A roseate spoonbill is wading through a shallow pond. Slowly, the bird sweeps its long, spoon-shaped bill back and forth through the water. The colorful bird is feeling for small fish and shrimp. When its super-sensitive bill detects movement in the murky waters, the bird grabs its prey and gobbles it down. Filled with information perfectly suited to the abilities and interests of its primary-grade audience, this colorful, fact-filled book gives readers a chance not only to learn all about roseate spoonbills and their swamp habitat, but also to develop their powers of observation and critical thinking. Built-in activities, such as guessing how the bird got its name and finding objects equivalent to the weight of a newly hatched spoonbill chick, give readers a chance to gain insights beyond the facts and figures.
