Taken from Chapter 3: Built for flight Bird bodies are perfect for flight. They are lightweight, but they are powerful. The sleek, or streamlined, shape of birds helps them slip easily through the air. During flight, a bird tucks its legs against its body and becomes even more streamlined. Feathers help smooth the body from head to tail.Review:
Birds Up Close is a fascinating series of six books. They help children understand the mechanics of flight and why some birds can't fly -- Sally Bender, Brandon Sun, Dec. 28, 1997
One of the great mysteries which fascinates young children is how do birds fly? This book explains all. Questions of why do birds fly [to escape danger] to how do they fly and how do they take off and land are answered through a concise text, excellent diagrams, and well placed illustrations. This is a fascinating book which even the lay adult reader would find of interest -- Kay Lehr, Fort Rouge School, Manitoba, March 1998
