This is an absolutely gorgeous biography about Roger Peterson, the famous American activist, teacher, artist, author and naturalist. From the time he was a small boy through his death as age 87, Peterson loved to observe, draw, and describe birds along with their habitats and movements. He spent his life studying birds, teaching about birds, writing identification guide books and working to keep birds safe around the world. This book is interesting and well-written. The illustrations bring the text alive as they are realistic, bright, colorful, and very detailed. I am thrilled to have this book for our school library. It will be fun to display it with some Peterson guides.
