Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This reissue of the classic Golden Guide first published in 1949, updated with new material, is still one of the best guides to identification of 129 bird species for middle elementary school children. This update includes several birds dropped from (black-crowned night heron) or added to (cattle egret) the roster, birds now named more specifically (Eastern rather than common bluebird), and shinier paper. However, most of the illustrations are repeats from earlier editions but still seem clearly rendered. Endmatter includes maps of the four principal flyways, a double-page chart of birds, their migration patterns, sixes, nest materials and locations, and typical foods, making this a useful source for reports as well as a way to sort for found nests or eggs. This introduction fits neatly in a backpack and will whet children's appetites for the larger, more complete works that are used by older birders. 2001 (orig. 1949), St. Martin's Press, $6.95. Ages 7 up. Reviewer:Susan Hepler

    Great little guide

    This is a guide to North American birds. It is a little guide; certainly not comprehensive, but useful and with accurate illustrations of each bird.
