A First Look At Philippine Birds
Introduce your children to ten Philippine birds: the Cattle Egret, Common Tailorbird, Palawan Peacock Pheasant, Philippine Cockatoo, Philippine Eagle, Philippine Hanging Parakeet, Red Jungle Fowl, Tarictic Hornbill, Tree Sparrow, White-Throated Kingfisher.
Tahanan's First Look at series aims to sharpen a young child's skill of observation in a world gloriously teeming with plant and animal life. Each book profiles ten types of flora or fauna found in the Philippines. Acclaimed science author Maria Elena Paterno and botanist Lolita J. Bulalacao shared two goals in writing these books: to help children understand basic classification in biology and zoology and to open their eyes to the diversity of the world around them. Artist Crispin Dayao's images are so beguilingly real that readers will want to pluck them right off the pages.
