Overview

"It's the sort of book which children have to plead with the adults to let them have a look at. Everything about it is superb. Highly recommended."
— The Bookbag.co.uk

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.

This book is outstanding! The quality of the photos and sound are exceptional. Love everything about it, including the print information. I bought this for my granddaughter, but I think I need another for me!
