The Bird Book

Publisher: Green Writers Press

The Bird Book is a children's alphabet book by artist and educator, Brian D. Cohen, with rhyming couplets written by Holiday Eames. Created for their son, David, each letter of the alphabet in both uppercase and lowercase, corresponds to the bird illustrated on each page. The description can be read aloud to especially inquisitive children, or be enjoyed by an adult reader alike. Originally hand-colored and printed letterpress, only 26 copies were made.

Their children and grandchildren will thank the parents and gift givers as well, for the birds in the book, and the accompanying couplets will open up a world of art and poetry that will become a family favorite.
