Teckentrup, Britta

Birds and Their Feathers

(3) K-3 The shapes, sizes, and uses of feathers as well as the structure and purposes of wings are thoroughly explained and beautifully illustrated. Discussions include the ways in which feathers protect birds from the elements and advertise their assets to potential mates. Teckentrup's art is particularly effective in conveying the fluff and fringes of feathers, and the way they splay in unfurled wings.
