One of my family's favorite past times is bird watching. Ever since our children were young we have had bird feeders, birdhouses and binoculars available for easy enjoyment of our fine-feathered friends. Frequently we will have a new (to us!) bird show up, and after watching him for a time we start digging into our resource books to find information on the newest arrival. If you are like us and find great enjoyment in bird watching, I would highly recommend these beautifully illustrated books to enhance your learning. Covering nearly 70 species of birds native to the state indicated, each book contains a two-page spread covering lifecycle, physical description, a large color picture, and details on habits, nesting, location, migration and feeding. In case you are new to bird studies, each book contains general information on birds including common traits, anatomy, eggs, nests, and feather types. Experienced and inexperienced bird watchers will appreciate the "Tips on Bird Watching" section which simplifies the how and when to watch birds as well as the "Outdoor Detective" journal pages which give your children a place to record their own personal bird sightings. (Additional journal pages can be downloaded from the publisher's website.) Also included are a variety of bird oddities, puzzles, unsolved bird mysteries, math applications and other fun tidbits that will delight children of all ages. A glossary, recommended nature centers and bird taxonomy chart complete the learning cycle for your family. Beautifully illustrated with bright and colorful text, these 200 page soft cover books are sure to delight the entire family! ~ Deanne
