Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This fascinating companion to the Golden Guide Bird volume fills in where the identification manual leaves off. Kress provides detailed information about certain unique or universal bird behaviors such as preening and other body care, sleeping, family life, social displays and migration. At least twenty closing pages discuss how to attract and support bird populations by planting, feeding and otherwise providing for bird welfare. Numerous visual aids such as diagrams, charts, maps and clear subject headings support the text, and informative watercolor illustrations provide further support. A tidy pocket-size format makes this easily portable and at the price, a terrific purchase for a family interested in going beyond identification of the usual backyard birds. 2001 (orig. 1991), St. Martin's Press, $6.95. Ages 7 up. Reviewer:Susan Hepler
