In Ruby’s Birds—perfect for our younger readers—educator, biologist, and co-director of Engagement in Science and Nature at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology Thompson shares a delightful story of how a young girl discovers birds in her city neighborhood, enlivening her world and exciting her to learn more about nature.
