A whimsical introduction to basic concepts and iconic buildings around the world, Architecture According to Pigeons takes children on an aerial tour of more than 40 well-loved structures, guided by "pigeon elder" Speck Lee Tailfeather. The book provides a fun, delightful, and totally unique way for kids to learn about the wonders of our built environment.
Tailfeather reveals that far from being mere bystanders (aka pests!) in the public square, pigeons are in fact great aficionados of architecture and know many insider secrets about the world's most significant buildings. From the Colosseum to the Taj Mahal to Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater, Tailfeather is brimming with fun stories and facts, such as how many stones were used to build the Great Pyramid of Giza and how many cars cross the Golden Gate Bridge every day.
Ghostwritten by Stella Gurney and featuring charming work by award-winning artist Natsko Seki, Architecture According to Pigeons is the most entertaining way you can help a child start seeing architecture in amazing new ways — and of course, be kinder to pigeons.
Recommended for children age 7 and up.
