Slide 3: Melissa Stewart is the one who told me about Birds of a Feather: Bowerbirds and Me. She has also written an excellent book about birds called Feathers Not Just for Flying, and it is illustrated by Sarah Brannen. This is an excellent book as well to facilitate a discussion about adaptations. Stewart explains the different uses of various feathers. She uses similes in her text to explain that some feathers are used for sunscreen while others are used for umbrellas. This comparison to everyday objects makes the text very accessible for readers. Lastly, Sarah Brannen’s illustrations also engage the reader because she made it look as if the book were a child’s scrapbook.
