Bird Children

Sir Rooster is a noisy chap,He wakes you from your morning nap;He sleeps but little all night through,Crows at eleven, one and two.Brimming with antique charm, these fanciful verses and color illustrations from a century ago depict eighty-five varieties of birds. The winsome images portray men, women, and children as sparrows, storks, crows, penguins, and other familiar and exotic species. Each of the accompanying rhymes comments on the bird's habits and appearance.
