9780805048025: Unbeatable Beaks

A beak is a spoon, a beak is a slicer.
A beak is a scraper, stabber, and spiker.

Have you ever wondered why birds have different shaped beaks? Many beaks are long and pointy while others are round and smooth. Some beaks have ridges; some are even shaped like spoons. Beaks are to birds what hands are to humans. That's why birds can do the most amazing things with their beaks--from spearing fish to turning eggs.

Stephen R. Swinburne's lyrical, chant-along text and Joan Paley's stunning paper collage illustrations introduce young children to a variety of wonderful birds and their distinctive beaks of all sizes, shapes, and colors.
