Kid’s Book Review: Clever Crow

About the Book

I bet you didn’t know that crows are really smart creatures!

After reading this beautifully illustrated book, which is full of fascinating facts, we guarantee that you will never again disregard the family of dark-coloured birds who circle the skies, roost high in the swaying branches of windswept trees and peck at roadkill!

Book Review

It is all about crows but presented in a really cool way

This book was great! It is all about crows but presented in a really cool way.
Crows are actually playful creatures and you can learn lots of facts about them from this book.

It is a non fiction book but it doesn’t feel like ususal non fiction books because its not like facts laid out, it feels a bit like a story.

The illustrations are beautifully drawn and coloured and help you understand the facts about crows.

I used this book to create a crow fact file for my homework and it was easy to use.

I would recommend this book to everyone who is interested in learning about the amazing bird that is the crow.
