I couldn't decide which way to review this book, to hate it or love it. Eventually I decided that I hate far too many books. So I will settle for being annoyed/amused.

Rikki is a kid who has a slightly abnormal interest in birds. He watches them, sings with them, feeds them, houses them, and writes quotes about them in his journal from people like Thorou. He's also like, 6, and builds his own birdhouse, and draws what bird embrios look like in his journal.

All in all, this book is great for kids
Loved this! Beautifully illustrated with vibrant colors and informative text. Each double page spread has lots of fun things to look at such as little diary entries. There's even instructions on how to build and install a birdhouse, a recipe for Bird Food cupcakes, information about birdbaths and feeders, and information about Bluebirds.
This is a nice book about a boy taking care of birds all year. Simple but this is a great book for spring or for reading aloud on a subject of birds or environment. Ages 2+

Yet another winner in this series. We read it a bunch and then made birdseed cupcakes (recipe in the back). I love these fun, teaching, interactive books!
A lovely book about making a birdhouse, feeding birds etc. - lots of good facts with a light and easy touch.
