Youngsters and bird lovers of all ages will enjoy this hands-on activity book. Included are 12 full-color stickers on two plates depicting a flock of familiar birds: red-winged blackbird, Eastern bluebird, house sparrow, scarlet tanager, blue jay, American robin, American goldfinch, white-breasted nuthatch, tufted titmouse, Northern cardinal, downy woodpecker, and Northern oriole.
On each page of the book, readers will find a concise, easy-to-read description (color, size, habitat, and other information) of one of the birds, along with a space for a sticker. As children learn about each bird they place the appropriate sticker in the space provided. It's a great way to have fun while absorbing a wealth of information about the birds around us.
