'BIRDS' is another delightful book from the British Museum's 'Gift Books' series. This particular book contains a variety of bird-related poems from different cultures and periods of history, each matched with an appropriate bird image selected from the Museum's collections. A lovely little book to dip in and out of, full of little gems, perfect to keep to one side and browse through as the mood takes you.

This book is just that bit unusual so has a special appeal. It contains some of my favourite poems and some that I much enjoyed getting to know. They were linked to birds that were interesting in themselves and the art work good and sometimes fascinating. It has given me much pleasure so I shall enjoy passing a copy on as a Christmas gift.
