Coolest Book in the Store Right Now

Right now, the coolest book in the store -- bar none -- is Birdscapes: A Pop-Up Celebration of Bird Songs in Stereo Sound, by Miyoko Chu with the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Most books with bird calls allow you to hear one bird's song at a time. Birdscapes offers you seven elaborately produced, full-color pop-up portrayals of various bird habitats with multiple bird songs from those habitats in stereo! When you open any of these individual spreads, you feel as if you are practically out in the habitat yourself. Powered by replaceable AAA batteries, the book offers a Sonoran Desert, a Pacific Seabird Colony, an Eastern Deciduous Forest, an Arctic Tundra, a Cypress Swamp, the Grasslands of North America's Great Plains, and a Pacific Rain Forest. This beautiful $60 book would make an excellent gift for any bird lover. I can't stop looking at -- and listening to -- this magical book.
