Its curiosity, friendliness, bravery, and acrobatic antics have long made the black- capped chickadee a favorite of bird watchers of all ages. Oh, Chickadee presents a year in the life of a chickadee, answering such questions as, Where do they nest? How do they protect themselves from predators? and How do they survive the frigid winter? It brings the more hidden world of these endearing birds into view.
Jennifer Richard Jacobson has loved chickadees since she fed them from her hand as a child. She is the author of many award-winning books for children and young adults. Her novel, Small as an Elephant, about a boy who was abandoned in a campground in Acadia National Park, won a Parent’s Choice Gold award and is now in its 19th printing.
