The National Geographic Kids Bird Guide of North America is both accessible and tons of fun. Fifty of the country's most popular birds are laid out in stunning two-page spreads that include information such as their range, the sounds they make, and the food they like to eat.

Each profile also displays a fact box with the bird's scientific name, weight, length, and wingspan.

Kids will also find tons of fun facts, bright and bold colors, full-color photographs, and layering of information that makes everything jump off the page.

Features include activities, such as how to build a birdhouse and how to build a birdfeeder, sidebars highlighting fascinating info, lists, range maps, and much more. Conservation information, a find out more section, glossary, and index add ample back matter to round out this book.

Good Book for Budding Birder


My almost 4-year old granddaughter enjoys seeing the birds that come to our feeders in Florida. She recently moved to Wisconsin, and with the help of her parents put a bird feeder on their apartment balcony. t's already attracted a variety of birds, and now she/they have a reference to identify their winged visitors!
