Product Description:

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

Publisher Description:

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

* Killdeer

* 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.

Birds are important

Sent this book to one grandchild, and it was so loved that I am sending it to my other grandchildren. The bird sounds are well done and are really compelling for little ones, and our family loves birds and wildlife. The owl sound is the favorite one so far.

For my 4-year-old granddaughter and her younger sister. I am an avid bird lover and they enjoy learning about these little feathered treasures!

What a wonderful idea! Teaching tiny children to identify birds is a wonderful avenue to introduce them to basic science. What you see outside your window leads to a much bigger world. Haven't used this book yet, but am very excited to share it with my little granddaughter.

Will this be back in stock for sure by June?
A shopper on May 24, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, we do not know for sure that these will be back in stock by June although we hope so. The supplier has been closed and we have had no response to our current requests for updated information.
Do you have to download to listen to the birds or is it prerecorded within the book?
A shopper on Sep 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The sound module is part of the book. The sounds are accessed by pressing a picture of the bird on the appropriate page.

Each Bird song plays clearly twice which helps to distinguish the sounds.

This is the best book ever! I would like to own everyone of these. We have had it for a few months, with five children using it. The bird sounds are so real, that one day we were doing it with the window open and pretty soon a house finch came to a branch just outside the window and started trying to talk to the house finch button we were playing. The house finch chatted back-and-forth with our bird book for quite some time! It was hilarious.

Excellent Book
I had reviewed this book 1 or 2 stars because we received a dud. Now I would like to rate about 7 stars or so. Someone on Rainbow Resource saw the rating, reached out to us and sent us a new one without any interaction on our part!

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

this book is great. My 3 yr. old grandson loved it. I almost want one myself. The bird songs are great. To hear these birds in winter through this book is comforting knowing spring is right around the corner, Lord willing.
