I bought this book for my 8-year-old son who is an avid bird watcher. It's a wealth of information! The photos are terrific. There's not many birds we haven't been able to find in it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This field guide turned on my 11 year old granddaughter who had just begun to enjoy birding.
Retiring to the country opened up a new window through which to see Mother Nature and her best friends, the birds. My granddaughter always wanted to wake up early when she slept over to see the birds when they arrived for their first feeding of the day. When she got a little older (now 11) she began calling me while riding in the car to tell me she saw a bird that interested her and then described the bird to see if I could identify it for her. I knew she was ready for her own field guide and I was delighted to find one written for the author's 12 year old daughter's classroom. Now my granddaughter calls to tell me exactly what birds she sees, i.e. "Nana, I just saw a 'teenager' Red-Tailed Hawk. I think he's a teenager because he still looks a little scruffy and his tail hasn't quite grown in red yet." Birding is a truly wonderful past time to share with a grandchild.Was this review helpful?
