Recently released, Hello Birds What Do You Say? by Loes Botman seems like the perfect end of August book as the cover reminds me so much of fall. Another charming example of Botman's stunning artistry, Hello Birds What Do You Say? beautifully illustrates twelve birds and their sounds. While nothing compares to hearing a bird in its natural surroundings, children always seem to love listening to a parent's various animal impersonation attempts. I know I can't adequately repeat the kowp kowp of a coot, but Botman's book will certainly help my children to identify one by its looks!
