Image: The Boy Who Drew Birds: A Story of John James Audubon (Outstanding Science Trade Books for Students K-12) | Hardcover | by Jacqueline Davies (Author). Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH); New title edition (September 27, 2004)John James Audubon's Birthday/Audubon Day/ National Bird Day (1785)
-- John James Audubon (Jean-Jacques Audubon) (April 26, 1785 – January 27, 1851) was a French-American ornithologist, naturalist, and painter. He was notable for his expansive studies to document all types of American birds and for his detailed illustrations depicting the birds in their natural habitats. His major work, a color-plate book entitled The Birds of North America (1827–1839), is considered one of the finest ornithological works ever completed.

Read: The Boy Who Drew Birds: A Story of John James Audubon
-- John James Audubon was a boy who loved the out-of-doors more than the indoors. He was a boy who believed in studying birds in nature, not just from books. And, in the fall of 1804, he was a boy determined to learn if the small birds nesting near his Pennsylvania home really would return the following spring. This book reveals how the youthful Audubon pioneered a technique essential to our understanding of birds. Capturing the early passion of America's greatest painter of birds, this story will leave young readers listening intently for the call of birds large and small near their own homes.

Pretzel Making at Home
National Pretzel Day
-- Pretzels can be traced back to ancient times when they were enjoyed during Lent. One story says in 610 A.D. a monk took rolls of leftover dough and shaped them into crisscrossed arms in the shape of praying hands. He called the treat a pretiola or little reward. Others dubbed his treats brachiola or little arms. The actual word pretzel has German origins, it is said to be similar to the word for bracelet. These first pretzels were soft.
