NEW Kids Picture Books: Day 12

Woodpecker Wham! 
by April Pulley Sayre. May 2015.

From Amazon: "Swoop and land. Hitch and hop. Shred a tree stump. Chop, chip, chop! Enter woodpecker world and get a bird's eye view of everyday life: hiding from hawks, feeding hungry chicks, and drilling holes to build homes. Woodpeckers are nature's home builders, creating holes that many other animals live in when the woopeckers move on.A variety of woodpecker species fly through these pages―perhaps some that live near you!"

My thoughts: I like picture books that subtly teach about nature without being a true reference book. This one uses simple rhymes and realistic illustrations to show different kinds of woodpeckers and the things they do, then has pages of additional information in the back. I could easily see this being used in a classroom during a unit on birds, as it reads aloud well like a fun picture book but is all non-fiction too.

Recommended Age: 4-8 years
