Here's a delightful little book with triple appeal: it's a coloring book, it's an introduction to familiar birds, and it enables youngsters to create their very own works of stained glass art. Printed on translucent paper and boldly outlined in black are eight different species: red-breasted nuthatch, blue jay, northern cardinal, barn swallow, house sparrow, black-capped chickadee, robin, and downy woodpecker. Images can be colored with paints, crayons, or felt-tip pens, then hung in the light to produce a glowing stained glass effect.
