I'm a Turkey by Jim Arnosky

Baby Bird by Joyce Dunbar - This book contains comic book style panel illustrations with the simple text along the bottom of the page. This could be used to teach children the concept of reading panels from left to right.

Don't Copy Me! by Jonathan Allen- So funny! From the guys who brought you "I am not Cute!" A puffin is followed by 3 small puffins and they follow him and copycat him all day. How annoying!

Pie in the Sky by Lois Ehlert - Birdies explore all the different things they can find in trees to eat.

Birds by Kevin Henkes-A really lovely book. Great illustrations and wonderful blend of imagination and education in the text. Can really make an impression on how we think of birds.

More by I.C. Springman- Wonderful illustrations by Brian Lies. A simple tale with minimal text that teaches kids that less is more in a very elegant manner.

Hungry Hen by Richard Waring- I was not especially impressed with this book. That said I think it could work okay for a story time book. It is a quick read and the illsutrations take up the whole page. The twist at the end I thought was a little weak but perhaps kids would find it funny. The irony however may be lost on them.
