National Geographic Kids Bird Guide of North America
By: Jonathan Alderfer
Publisher:National Geographic Children's Books
Age Range: 8-12
This is a great book to have if your child is interested in birds or bird watching.
The book includes color photographs of 100 species found in North America. The book is divided by location so it is much easier to locate what birds you would most likely see in each area. The book provides information about each species' habitat, diet, and other fun facts.
This pictures in the book are beautiful, my daughter's personal favorite is Anna's Hummingbird pictured above. This is not a book we sit down and read through but we will sit down together and read about a couple different birds together.
The book also provides information on hot to spot birds, building a birdhouse, building a bird feeder, and much more. It's a great way to get involved in something with your child.
The only downfall to this book I have found it the cover does not stand up to repeated handling very well. My daughter loves this book and carries it with her and you can tell.
