The kids were amazed by other stories of Audubon's life. In fact, we couldn't get enough of him. We kept searching for more books and more stories.
If you'd like to read some stories of wanderlust and adventure, you must check out both the childhood and adult stories of John James Audubon. And then after you've heard the tales of the talented artist / naturalist, check out the books with his very own, intricate bird illustrations. This has been a delightful exploration week at ReadMeAStory! I hope your family enjoys the biographies and illustrations as much as we have!
Here are some of our favorites:
John Audubon: Young Naturalist by Miriam E Mason and Cathy Morrison (c. 2006) presents a great overview of Audubon's childhood and youth. I would recommend this book for 2nd - 4th grade readers. Although, we did find the illustrations a little odd.
