Are there meforshim on perek shira? I'm looking for anything besides artscroll. If there are many, which would you recommend to start?

    I would first recommend looking up all the pesukim in context.

I recommend Perek Shirah: Nature's Song, by R' Natan Slifkin. He does a great job of explaining both what Perek Shirah is all about and what each element can teach us. He combines traditional commentaries on both Perek Shirah and its source verses with his knowledge of zoology and other natural sciences, and provides precise citations of all his sources to facilitate further study.


Braisa Perek Shira by Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky Shlita

Perek Shira by Rabbi Yechiel Binyamin MiPlutzk Zatzal


Rav Yaakov Emden wrote a commentary to Perek Shira entitled Zimrat Ha’arets, which is found in his Siddur.

Mabit and Hida also authored commentaries published together in a single volume by Feldheim (2005).
