Crow Smarts: Inside the Brain of the World's Brightest Bird - Pamela S. Turner, Andy Comins

Staff Pick

Did you know that crows are one of the smartest species on Earth? That’s what author Pamela S. Turner and photographer Andy Comins discovered as they documented scientist Gavin Hunt’s studies of New Caledonian crows. These oft-maligned birds possess the intelligence necessary to solve complex problems, evinced by their ability to manufacture and manipulate simple tools in order to obtain food! How did they get these Crow Smarts (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, $18.99)? Do the parents teach their young how to perform these tasks, or are they simply naturally gifted? Turner’s compelling, easy-to-read narrative addresses these and other questions in a fascinating exploration of these amazing creatures. Ages 11-14.
