John James Audubon was an American painter who created hundreds of beautiful pictures of birds and animals. He lived from 1785 until 1851. His paintings are very realistic, because he wanted people who saw them to learn what the birds really look like. You’ll find twenty-two of his bird paintings in this coloring book. They are shown as small reproductions on the inside front and back covers. When you color in these pictures, you might want to copy his colors, or you might decide to give the birds colors they’ve never had before!
The last page of this book is blank so that you can draw and color your own bird picture. Maybe it will be of a bird you see in your backyard, or on your city street. If you don’t know what the bird is called, ask someone, so that you can give your picture the right title. Or, maybe you’ll make up a bird out of your imagination! Will it still have two legs and two wings? What will you call it?
