Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Sue Preissner
The National Audubon Society has geared this book to children but you don't have to be a child to delight in the presentations here. It provides information on characteristics such as form and color, habitat, species, and identification of the more widely found specimens. The book contains more than 450 color photographs with an easily read text. The soft vinyl cover provides portability and protection. A removable, water-resistant card can be used for spotting species in the field. The first section of each book provides general information on the topic, including a description of what a naturalist is and does. Essential equipment and rules for observing nature are also mentioned. Anatomy of birds is presented as well as reproductive methods (in simple language). The second section is entitled "how to look at...." and includes shapes, body parts, living condition, and habitat. The third section, also called the Field Guide, identifies the most common species with a spectacular color photograph on the left, and supporting information and similar species identification on the right. A glossary listing the 50 state birds, a list of resources, and comprehensive index completes this guide.
School Library Journal
Gr 4 Up-Two welcome additions to nature study that are not strictly field guides per se. Beginning with descriptions of ornithology and entomology, the authors invite young people to become aware of and familiar with the natural world. With sharp, clear full-color photos (some spectacular, some disappointingly small), birds and insects are described, classified, and placed in their habitats. Birds covers identification marks; eating, mating, and nesting habits; migration; and endangered status. Insects provides similar information plus cautions against those insects that bite or sting. The photos greatly magnify the size of each species. Both volumes do include useful sections of photos for quick identification while on hikes, etc. A glossary of technical terms, lists for further reading, organizations, videos, software, and Web sites are appended. These inviting and easy-to-use titles will deservedly be popular.-Kathleen McCabe, East Meadow Public Library, NY
John Caddy
The Audubon First Field Guides rise above the field-guide tradition...Impressive in scope and inclusiveness, they offer readers an introduction to Earth's diverse systems, from animals to plants to rocks to weather...The Audubon series is well grounded in nature, accurate [and] well presented.
