Hovering, gliding, diving -- how do birds do it? BIRDS: NATURE'S MAGNIFICENT FLYING MACHINES looks at how feathers, body structure, and wings vary from bird to bird. Readers will learn the mechanics of bird flight from takeoff to landing and discover how wing types meet the survival needs of each species. Popular science writer Caroline Arnold infuses this informative look at avian flight with her love of birds. Patricia J. Wynne's exquisitely detailed illustrations show these amazing creatures in action.
Caroline Arnold is the award-winning author of more than one hundred and forty books for children, including WIGGLE AND WAGGLE, A WARMER WORLD, and TOO HOT? TOO COLD?: KEEPING BODY TEMPERATURE JUST RIGHT. She lives in Los Angles, California.
