#MentorTextMoment: Birds of a Feather


The Book:


Author/Illustrator: Susan L. Roth

Publication Info.: Neal Porter Books/Holiday House, 2019

Category: Nonfiction, compare/contrast

What’s noteworthy for authors and educators:

Written in first person POV, this compare/contrast nonfiction picture book features the author/illustrator, Susan Roth as the narrator. In each spread, she compares the work of a collage artist with that of a bowerbird, a species from Australia/New Guinea that builds bowers to attract mates. She discusses their purpose for creating, tools, and much more. This book would make a great read aloud and the perfect jumping off point for classroom collage art.
