    Good Introduction for Children and Teens to Bird Conservation

    Since this is an audio recording of a published children's book I feel like it's age appropriate by default. The author, Phillip Hoose, gives a word-for-word reading and starts off by talking about B95 in the present tense and his awe-inspiring migration. To put things into perspective, he takes the time to explain about the Red Knot bird species as a whole and its current plight. He also delves back in time to speculate on B95's early years based on current knowledge of Red Knots and their known habitats and migration paths. Despite B95's renown, he is described as hard to capture for research and scientific purposes, although he has faithfully returned to the same locations or nearby places along his known migration route. The story focuses on this elusiveness. What makes this story more compelling is that Hoose participated in shorebird banding and is personally invested in B95's story. Other highlights include interviews of people involved in conservation efforts and who have personally heard of B95's story. Chapter 9--the appendix--is especially helpful for children who feel compelled to help shorebirds, including Red Knots, in any way they can. The only real issue I had was the lack of pictures/CD covers to go with the chapters since I added this to my music player. Overall, I would recommend this book to families with children or, specifically, parents looking for a way to help instill an environmental ethic and stewardship values in their children. The length of the book is good in terms of details and overall content.
