Little Book of Backyard Bird Songs
The naturalist in me adores this book! Introduce your littlest ones to the 12 most common backyard birds through the beautiful images, background information and clear realistic sounds. Each 2 page spread features one bird. On the left, you will find the common and scientific name, a summary paragraph and specific details including location found, diet, size, description of eggs and more. The opposite side has a beautiful, lifelike image of the bird, and a "Did you know" statement. The book itself is composed of thicker, board book type pages. The sound module is encased in durable plastic and is attached to the book. Each bird's sound button has a lifelike picture of the bird's face that matches the image inside the book. A list of the included birds is the House Wren, American Goldfinch, Red-Winged Black Bird, Killdeer, House Finch, Great Horned Owl, Blue Jay, American Robin, Northern Cardinal, Mourning Dove, American Crow and the Song Sparrow. Don't be surprised if your children are outside playing and come running to share the name of the bird singing from the trees! Book measures approximately 8 3/4 x 8 1/4". ~ Deanne
Being able to identify a bird's song is a skill that brings joy and fosters an appreciation of nature. Learning how to differentiate between the songs of a house finch and a goldfinch, however, is not easy. That is where this enchanting book comes into its own. It features recordings of twelve bird songs from some of the best-known garden bird species seen and heard across North America.
This is an interactive board book designed for any age with features for young readers. The board pages are easy to turn. The twelve song buttons are easy to activate and each bears a portrait of the singing bird. The high-quality sound module is encased in durable plastic, and the one-inch (3 cm) speaker makes it easy to hear and differentiate the elements of a bird's song, like pitch, tempo, whistles, trills and buzzes.
All twelve birds have winter or summer ranges in the United States and Canada. This means that readers are sure to see most if not all the birds.
The song birds are:
* House Wren
* Red-winged Blackbird
* House Finch
* Great Horned Owl
* Blue Jay
* Northern Cardinal
* American Crow
* Song Sparrow
* American Goldfinch
* American Robin
* Mourning Dove
This charming book is a fun (and potentially addictive) way for all ages to delight in nature's winged singers. It's a winning gift for any occasion, from a child's birthday to a hostess gift.

Stellar work, Rainbow Resource; I know it's a ton of work, but you're doing better than Amazon ;-)
