cuteness instead of substance, but that s not the case in Karl s New Beak Karl is a Abyssinian ground hornbill, which translates to Karl is a large black bird with a red throat Karl is imposing, majestic, perhaps even a bit scary looking for very young children, but most important, Karl lost the bottom half of his beak Because of that, he can only eat a very restricted diet which is boring and even dangerous for birds like Karl and may never get a girlfriend isn t that sad Fortunately, Karl lives in the Smithsonian s National Zoo, and the zoo s veterinarian will do anything he can to help him I loved the pictures and drawings along the book, so did my niece and nephew The way in which losing half his beak impacts all aspects of Karl s life is made clear throughout the book, helping children see that, just as people, animals need to be healthy to live full lives I think children of many ages will enjoy this book, but young children ages 8 or less may need help from their parents to fully understand it The book goes over some difficult concepts, like how to create models from real life objects, in this case from an Abyssinian skeleton, but Lela Nargi does a good job explaining them so everybody gets to understand how Karl got his new beak Harriet Popham s illustrations are both beautiful and helpful, and going through the pages looking at them is entertaining, so children can enjoy the book many times.Thanks to Netgalley for making this book available for an honest review flag 8 likesLike see review View 2 comments Aug 26, 2018 Laura rated it really liked it

bird skeleton and a 3 D printer give Karl a new beak Karl s new adventure was about to begin Karl s New Beak is an engaging and interesting read I love learning about animals, and discovering not only how they live, but how some people care enough to help and support them Karl is a captive hornbill that certainly would not have survived in the wild Zookeepers cared enough about Karl that they did not just want him to survive, they wanted him to be happy They researched and tried for the right solution to help Karl The information about Karl in particular, and the species in general, was well explained and accessible The combination of photography and artwork help show the details of the project to help Karl, and how some technology and science tools can be used Karl s New Beak is both interesting and uplifting While some people might think the time and effort that went into helping Karl have a satisfying life was a waste, I think helping living creature can be its own reward It can also be used to expand our skills and knowledge in ways that we can use to help even animals and people in the future flag Like see review Karen rated it really liked it Oct 02, 2018 Jennifer marked
