This book is the first in a series of books about the birds of America. The story of birds is told by Howard the Owl. The idea is to bring an awareness of birds to children from a young age and to teach them to love and appreciate the birds in their area. Howard will make young readers aware of the world of birds and encourage new and young bird lovers and viewers.
