About this book

A Peterson Field Guide to 200 of the most common and interesting birds in eastern North America, written especially for kids ages eight to twelve. Increasingly popular among all ages, birding is an especially popular family friendly activity. This fun and lively guide provides just the right amount of information for kids who have an interest in birds and want to learn more. Each of the 200 species is described on a full page packed with information and written in an engaging style. "Wow" bursts contain particularly interesting facts about each bird. Range maps are easy to read and each one includes a key, so that small hands won't have to flip again and again to the front or back of the book. There is even a space for young birders to check off birds they have spotted and the date the species was seen.

Colour photographs are used for identification purposes, and black-and-white line drawings by Julie Zickefoose illustrate interesting behaviors or characteristics. A birder since childhood, Thompson says he would have loved a book like this one when he was just getting interested in birds. Now a father of two, he spent many hours over a two-year period with his now eleven-year-old daughter's class getting their advice on what to include in the book.
