X is for Xenops

The xenops is another bird that clings to trees
            and pecks,
But the coolest thing about it is, its name
            begins with X!


        Okay, so I didn’t make up the xenops and indeed it’s not fictional at all, but it is a character in one of my books: my alphabet of animals.


        Xenops from Amazing, Beguiling, Curious: 26 Fascinating Creatures, an alphabet book for ages 3-8.  More information here, or “Look inside” at Amazon.

  3. Your choice is original. I have not seen a Xenops for X before.

    1. I didn't know about xenops either, until I went searching for an X creature for my alphabet of animals.
