This is a fun and well illustrated book to teach kids about birds that provides loads of information and some fun projects and activities. It starts with profiles of 25 common North American birds like doves, woodpeckers, bluebirds, turkeys and vultures. Each one has a colorful photograph, a map showing its range (migratory, breeding and year-round) and information about diet, etc. I noticed that the ranges are not always accurate for where we live (SW Minnesota), with some birds showing up as n ...more

Such a fun resource to have as we are sheltering in place. The book is divided into three parts.

Part 1 lists 25 different kinds of common birds. We live in the Midwest, and we've seen almost all of these birds at some point. The pictures of each bird are very clear, making it easy to identify the birds when we're in the backyard. There are also interesting facts listed for each one, too.

Part 2 gives outdoor activities that kids can easily do--everything from bird watching to making a bird feeder

The next two chapters provide well designed activities, one set for outside and one for inside. Each activity clearly list materials needed, directions, follow up and discoveries. Some are more involved than others but most require just simple materials. On

Birding Adventures for Kids by Audubon is a very pretty book, and the 40 pages of activities would be good for a child just learning about birds. Unfortunately, although they start out well in teaching a child bird-watching type things overall the activities seem rather random, with harder activities mixed in with extremely easy activities. And the rest of the book is really a very low-level bird guide, showing only the most basic birds that most people already know.. I think this book would be ...more

This is a book to study while watching birds visit your feeder--filled with excellent photographs of common birds, and ideas for games and crafts to enhance learning more about them. Recommended for middle t0 upper elementary readers, and their family members.
