She's Wearing a Dead Bird on Her Head! by Kathryn Lasky, illustrated by David Catrow
Rating: three stars (out of four)
I thought this was an educational book that featured something in history that I had never heard about. By putting it in the form of a picture book and having fun illustrations it did not feel educational or tedious at all. I was interested in the story and how things would work out and I still got a vivid picture of what it might have looked like at that time period. Kudos to the authors for creating a book that would appeal to a wide range of audience and still have an easy format. I would probably recommend, especially if you were interested in a quick story of how the Audubon Society was formed.
