Reviews - What do our customers think?
Get the kids out of the house!  Nov 20, 2008
The book is bound for durability and printed on heavy paper for continued and enthusiastic use by children. As expected, the book is a basic introduction to birding, beginning with brief, easy-to-understand discussions on what a birdwatcher is, where to look, and what equipment is needed. Common names and species names are discussed and very informative sections are provided on the field mark system, parts of a bird (feathers, etc.), bird song, bird-watching etiquette, and the obvious, "birds are everywhere!"

The next several sections of the book delve into the various bird worlds, such as city birds, woodland birds, country birds, wetland birds, seashore birds, and desert birds. Common birds representing these habitat types are illustrated cartoon-like, but are adequate enough to bring out the field marks and allow for children to have an enjoyable time identifying birds.

Intermixed through these habitat sections are a variety of projects in which children can participate, such as starting a birding group, making hummingbird feeders and nesting boxes, planting sunflower gardens, and making birdbaths. Near the end of the book there are brief biographies on James Audubon and Roger Tory Peterson, two great men, and two great influences on birding. Also, advice is given on what to do when a baby bird is found and how to create a birding journal.

Overall, the book covers every aspect of birding that a child requires to start this wonderful and interesting hobby. For any child showing interest in birds and wildlife, this book is highly recommended as a starting point.
Just for kids  Aug 11, 2008
This is a fun book for kids with good information on watching birds. The cartoon book format might actually get kids outdoors. Give this and a pair of binoculars as a gift.
Birding for Kids if fun!  Jul 30, 2005
This is a good book for young children (7-10) starting in birding. There is a lot of interesting facts about common birds. There is also ideas for homemade treats and homemade bird boxes and baths. I enjoyed this book myself. I would recommend it for the young "birder" in your family.
