There are plenty of reasons to appreciate birds. Plume, a cat, has a different reason than most felines—the love of feathers. In Plume, named for the furry feather aficionado we follow through this book, the reader encounters beautiful illustrations of birds and their feathers. Text is limited to leave space for this artwork.
Verdict: Plume is a very visual work. It should be included in any classroom discussion about birds. It would also be useful in an art class in which students create their own feather designs.
