The newest in our popular children's activity line for budding bird lovers! This informative field guide and activity book teaches kids about birds of all varieties, in the city, country, desert, or at the beach-because no matter where you go, you're bound to spot a bird! Kids will learn about making the backyard bird-friendly, building a bird feeder, and creating their own bird watching notebook to record sightings, locations, information, and notes from the field. From city birds (the Ruby Throated Hummingbird) to desert birds (the Red-tailed Hawk), kids of all ages will learn about common and not-so-common birds, with detailed diagrams and illustrations. With activities like how to grow a garden to attract birds and how to contribute to the care of the native birds in the area, this is the perfect book to get kids engaged with our feathered friends at an early age, and to encourage them to go outside and have fun while they learn! Fran Lee has illustrated and designed many books in the Gibbs Smith activity book series including Cooking on a Stick, Haunting on a Halloween, Riding on a Range, Wishing on a Star, and Putting on a Party.
