After watching a Red-bellied Woodpecker’s failed attempts to balance on a feeder, Laurie Ellen Angus got to thinking about bird feet—and eventually crafted an entire book around them. Through vibrant cut-paper collage and instructive vocabulary, Angus examines the adaptations that various species have evolved to help them grasp, scratch, and wade through their environment. For example, a Greater Roadrunner’s strong feet and legs enable it to speed through the desert after small prey (while dodging coyotes). And that Red-belly? Its toes are better suited for scaling tree bark. An appendix with extra foot facts, activities, and resources will surely keep little readers curious.
