Andrea Miller – My First Book of Canadian Birds

Help your child identify birds like the Canada goose, American robin, and yellow warbler in their natural habitats with colourful and whimsical collage-style illustrations from breakout East Coast artist Angela Doak (Atlantic Animal ABC).

Simple, gentle text gives readers a peek into the habitats of Canadian birds and introduces child and parent to fun facts about everything from bird sounds to egg sizes! My First Book of Canadian Birds is the perfect way to introduce young readers to birds from across the country.

Andrea Miller has been an editor and staff writer at Lion’s Roar magazine (formerly called the Shambhala Sun) since 2006. She’s also the editor of three anthologies for Shambhala Publications: Right Here with You: Bringing Mindful Awareness into Our Relationships, Buddha’s Daughters: Teachings from Women Who Are Shaping Buddhism in the West, and All the Rage: Buddhist Wisdom on Anger and Acceptance.

Miller is the author of two picture books: My First Book of Canadian Birds (Nimbus Publishing) and The Day the Buddha Woke Up (Wisdom Publications). In addition, her writing has appeared in a wide range of publications, including, Mindful magazine, the Best Buddhist Writing series, The Best Women’s Travel Writing series, The Antigonish Review, Prairie Fire, The Chronicle Herald, The Globe and Mail, and Saltscapes. In the fall of 2019, Pottersfield Press will publish her book Awakening My Heart: Articles, Essays, and Interviews on the Buddhist Life.
