The Boy Who Drew Birds: A Story of John James Audubon (Outstanding Science Trade Books for Students K-12)
by Jacqueline Davies Author
(From Amazon): John James Audubon was a boy who loved the out-of-doors more than the in. He was a boy who believed in studying birds in nature, not just from books. And, in the fall of 1804, he was a boy determined to learn if the small birds nesting near his Pennsylvania home really would return the following spring. This book reveals how the youthful Audubon pioneered a technique essential to our understanding of birds. Capturing the early passion of Americaâ€™s greatest painter of birds, this story will leave young readers listening intently for the call of birds large and small near their own homes.
