    OK OK OKKKKK Pigeons? Seriously? A book about pigeons? I meanpigeons Aren't they just rats with wings? Heck no Pigeons can fly faster than car and father than a small airplane They've played a vital role in history Heck even Picasso named his daughter after them Kevin McCloskey author of We Dig Worms comes back to Toon Books with well researched facts sense of humor and fun visual style to tell us aboutpigeons Kevin tells us the story of pigeons through a group of young children in pigeon costumes who learned all they needed to know in PS 101 pigeon school 101 as they correct our misconceptions about the wonder of pigeons Yes pigeons And yes one of the characters even calls them rats with wings But after reading this book you're likely to reconsider your stance At least on all pigeons Because pigeons have had a vital role in our history from bringing us our mail to being used during the war to deliver important messages to just helping us better understand the world around us Having kids dressed as pigeons is a fun way to deliver facts and help correct misconceptions that readers both young and old are likely to have about the birdsKevin painted each image in the book yes painted on pigeon blue Fabriano paper that gives the illustrations a much different feel While blue would normally be used for a somber mood the blue here is lively More like the pale blue of the sky on an early spring day just as you start to notice the animal young around you It also allows Kevin to show different details than he normally would By using blue paper he's able to paint white pigeons allowing some of the blue to show through to give it a sense of depth and life that he would have been unable to do with other colors of paper The illustrations are lively and the characters are fun to follow around as they talk about pigeons in their pigeon costumes My favorite page is actually the last page though where one of the characters learning about pigeons decides suirrels are the bad ones instead And we see him saying this in the background where some young children are seated on the swing set dressed inwhat else? Suirrel costumes I really hope Kevin does a book about suirrels next because that would be awesomeThis fun little book gives readers a chance to learn about pigeons and how they aren't uite as ugly as one might think In fact some of them can be downright fancy While this book doesn't contain enough information to do a full report on pigeons it does contain enough to give readers a sense of where to start looking for information and to start changing their perception on what they think Recommended for collection for K 2 gradeReview copy provided by Toon Books

    After reading this my daughter went from asking Mommy why are you obsessed with pigeons this week? to asking Mommy can we have some pigeons? The answer to the first uestion is that I was reading about Darwin's obsession with the selective breeding of pigeons in The Origin of Species I had no idea that so many types of pigeons exist beyond the common ones we see in cities Breeders have paired off pigeons with various desirable attributes until we have hundreds of very distinct beautiful and sometimes strange breeds There are ones with curly hair ones with chests puffed out so far that they can't even feed themselves ones with tail feathers like a turkey others with fluffy feet tall ones tri colored ones There are ones that are bred for show and others that are bred for the speed of their homing tendency This book is beautifully illustrated and starts with a pigeon loving woman and pigeon loving kids educating a pigeon hating man on a park bench about all the beautiful types of pigeons that exist In the end he finds a new appreciation for them And that's really the point of the book to bring a new appreciation for a bird that many don't realize is so interesting The nice thing is that this is a Level 1 reader which is easy for even beginning readers to enjoy on their own I also like that there's a page of kid extras and a teacher's guide available for this book


  4. Martha Martha says:

    Told in easy to read text with realistic and attractive paintings of birds especially pigeons and elderly adults gives an effective contrast to the cartoon like whimsical children in pigeon costumes The vehicle of pigeon clad children sharing important and surprising facts about them is clever and fun Who knew that pigeons carried the first airmail or that Picasso's daughter Paloma was named after the Spanish word for pigeon The Real Poop on Pigeons is formatted in a supremely effective informational non fiction graphic novel format chock full of important and little known facts about pigeons What a perfect blend of visual literacy and delightful pigeon information that kids are bound to remember The pigeon blue Fabriano paper is elegant yet reminiscent of its subject This clever title will fly off the shelf

    Disclosure I received a free copy of this book from the publisher at a conference and met the author who signed my book I loved pigeons as a kid My mum would take me to the zoo and I paid attention to the pigeons than the animals at the zoo So this book though aimed at kids seemed right up my alley A book just about pigeons? YesI liked this book Probably good for kids who are in kindergartenfirst grade if they were to read it themselves; I think younger kids would enjoy having it read to them You get to learn how pigeons live different breeds and other interest facts told through kids on pigeon costumes It can be funny at times too So if you have a kiddo in your life who likes pigeons birds or animals this a book worth checking out


  6. Rebecca Ann Rebecca Ann says:

    This is a great little nonfiction book about pigeons that blends beautiful illustrations fun facts and some humor I'd pair pieces of it with Don't let the pigeon drive the bus or any bird themed storytime


  7. Jolee Jolee says:

    Sort of a silly title and premise right? But really a sweet lovely funny tribute topigeons of all things And a nice soft launch into the world of graphic novels for the youngest of young graphic novel readers


  8. Jolene Haack Jolene Haack says:

    Delightfully strange and easy read for a new reader It actually made me want to get a pigeon And importantly to read this to my two year old niece


  9. Earl Earl says:

    I enjoyed We Dig Worms so it wasn't really surprising I would enjoy this as well Pigeons are gross and I still don't like them despite learning fascinating things about them
