Publisher's Summary

Thornton Waldo Burgess (1874-1965) was a conservationist and author of children's stories. Burgess loved nature and its wild animals so much that he wrote about them for 50 years in books and his newspaper column, Bedtime Stories. The delightful Adventures of Sammy Jay combines humorous animal escapades with gentle lessons about wildlife and nature, while The Burgess Bird Book for Children (1919) is a classic nature book which introduces young listeners to the subject of bird life by means of a series of interviews within a story. Peter Rabbit and Jenny Wren interview Slaty the Junco, Redwing the Blackbird, Melody the Wood Thrush, Spooky the Screech Owl, and many other birds to learn about their appearance, their eating, mating and nesting habits, and their songs and calls. In The Burgess Animal Book for Children, Old Mother Nature holds a school for the animals every day at sun-up. She helps them all obtain a better understanding of the mammals of North America.
