Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Rather than taking a purely scientific approach to ornithology, Blanchan offers great doses of folklore about the 100 species included, as well as information about potential threats to each type of bird, both natural and humanmade. In actuality, this illustrated edition will probably charm more adults than kids. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
From the Publisher

“This is a very nice book! Besides being pleasantly thick and crammed with information, it's an example of good writing for young readers. It's clear, not condescending, and does not read as especially dated for all its having been written almost a hundred years ago.Birds Every Child Should Know is a book many a child, and many an adult, should know today.”—Daniel Pinkwater
