Comments for Nature's Children: Ostriches
Continuing with Sean's self imposed study of all things avian, we checked out Nature's Children: Ostriches by Merebeth Switzer from our local library.
Ostriches is 48 pages of full color illustrations and facts written for elementary school aged readers. The book covers the life cycle of the ostrich, how the parents take turns watching the nest, the different colors for males, females and chicks and where ostriches live. We learned that ostriches used to live on all the major continents but hunting killed off all the populations except for those in Africa.
The book we read was from the first series but Scholastic has a second series of books out that comes in 8 different sets.
