Curious blind elementary students will find our Nature's Mysteries Braille books informative and interesting, full of answers, and totally captivating. 9 books on this shelf. How Bats See in the Dark. by Malcolm Penny, 21 pages How Birds Fly. This book takes a look at flight, investigating the internal and external design of birds' bodies, and uses examples and explanations to clarify the complexity of the topic. Full-colour photographs, artwork and diagrams provide clear information about life processes that can often seem bewildering. How Birds Fly shows how a bird's feathers and wings work, and how birds manage to take off, fly, glide and land with incredible precision.

Birds in Flight takes a very complicated subject, which includes elements of anatomy, ecology, and physics, and presents it in a way that non-professionals can understand. This is the best general treatment of avian flight that I have seen. Moreover, there is an abundance of interesting information, such as the aforementioned explanation of tail shapes, and a possible reason why Turkey Vultures fly with their wings in a dihedral position and rock back and forth. Anyone who wants to learn more about this fundamental aspect of birds’ lives would be well advised to start here.

8 How Birds Lost Their Teeth. Birds, the direct descendants of dinosaurs, went through multiple paths of evolution to reach their current state. From an evolutionary standpoint, they are also one of nature’s biggest enigmas

8 How Birds Lost Their Teeth. However, there is a lot that we don’t understand about our airborne peers, especially their lack of teeth. Although birds once had teeth, they gave them up at some point in favor of beaks. We didn’t have any idea how or when until scientists began to study the genome of birds. From an evolutionary standpoint, they are also one of nature’s biggest enigmas. Even if we ignore the question of why they gave up flying, the mystery of how they crossed the continents without the ability to fly has confounded us for about 150 years.
