Books That Invite Discovery
Where Have All the Birds Gone? Nature in Crisis (coming Spring 2022) has just been given a star by Kirkus Reviews! Here's what Kirkus had to say:
★ "This pithy book more than fulfills its promise to introduce readers to the importance of birds, the state of avian research, and how they can contribute to birds’ well-being.… Well-informed inspiration."
