Alot of fun! My girls and I love this book! What a pleasure to be able to look out our window and now be able to identify the types of birds that live among us. We even now can recognize a bird by sound.This book includes wonderful pictures with easy to read descriptions of the birds and their habits.What a great way to spend time with each other having fun exploring and learning.A book that can be enjoyed at any age.

A good introduction for children to the field of bird watching. The Peterson guides are a well established in the birding world. I was looking for a good basic introductory book for my young daughter who, like me, enjoys bird watching. This book has a list of the most common birds that we’re likely to see in our backyard. I like the way it’s divided by feather coloration rather than by species or group of species. This makes it easier for a child to learn to identify the birds in a non-overwhelming way. I plan to buy the rest of the series for our family’s field library.

A Better Format ? I purchased this book for a seven year old and think I expected a format more similar to the standard Peterson guide, but obviously with fewer birds. I also felt that more birds could have been included –if a child can read, he can also take in a good bit of information, more than was included here. A pleasant booklet, though, but perhaps most suited to the child who has never really seen or thought about birds previously.
