How Birds Learn to Read
Did you ever imagine birds could read? Certainly many of our feathered friends can fly, some can swim like ducks, but read? Birds share many of our reading skills. They possess remarkable observation and listening skills, problem-solving abilities and unending curiosity. As a little bird once told me, "Reading gives you wings to fly."
