Reviews

Students...will enjoy this thin introduction to birds, many of which might be found near their own homes.--Nancy Stroud"INFOLINK" (05/21/2010) Readers should appreciate the variety of sizes, shapes, and colors of birds... Also could inspire an appreciation of the environment.--Edward I. Saiff, Ramapo College of New Jersey"Science Books and Film" (03/01/2010) This is not an alphabet book, though its organization belies that fact! Each page includes at least one photograph and fact box on the featured bird and the layout and composition make this as attractive to browsers as it is to researchers. A sort of a precursor to a field guide in its layout, this book also includes a brief glossary. The photographs of each bird are quite good, and the descriptions, while brief, are adequate.... Readers should appreciate the variety of sizes, shapes, and colors of birds and, hopefully, will become interested in watching birds through having read this book. The book also could inspire an appreciation of the environment and a wider interest in nature.--Edward I. Saiff, Ramapo College of New Jersey"Science Books and Film" (03/01/2010) Colorful photographs and boxed inserts and a glossary provide snapshots of information about 26 birds ranging from North America to South America. Students interested in birds will enjoy this thin introduction to birds, many of which might be found near their own homes.--Nancy Stroud"INFOLINK" (05/21/2010)
