Review for A Peek at Beaks

Review for A Peek at Beaks

A Peek at Beaks: Tools Birds Use, Sara Levine, Kate Slater, Birds, Non-fiction, Cover Love, Children's Books, AnimalsI received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

I just love books about birds and this one looked very fun, the cover was so pretty, so I had to read this one!

In this book we learn all about various birds and their beaks and what they are used for. I had a laugh at the way they showed the beak before showing us the birds that had a beak that did the thing they showed on the previous page. For instance for a beak with air conditioning (or at least it works that way) they showed a ventilator. For a beak like a straw, they showed a straw. I really liked that they went with that. And I had fun flipping to the next page to see what bird it would be! Some I could guess, others not so much.

HOWEVER, yes, that needs to be in caps. I did get a bit bored. I mean, the whole what is this bird was fun the first 3 times, but the whole book is that. I would have rather seen some other things to show us beaks. To tell us about beaks.

Plus, I just couldn’t stop getting Pokemon flashbacks. What is this Pokemon?

But I did learn things, and I did enjoy the book because the parts about the birds was interestingly written and I just LOVE LOVE the art! Really, the art makes me give this book extra points.

All in all, I am happy I got the chance to read this.

Star rating, 3.5 stars
