No matter where you live, birds live there too. Look at the tips in this book—and then step outside to see what you can see.

"Nature-loving kids in cities and suburbs will flock to this chatty, enthusiastic introduction to birdwatching, which emphasises enjoyment over equipment. Author and illustrator Annette LeBlanc Cate encourages readers to learn about birds in their own neighbourhoods, first by simply paying attention to birds' shapes, colours, songs, and behaviours, and only then moving on to more complex characteristics like habitat, range, and migratory patterns. Cate also suggests that drawing birds is a great way to sharpen observational skills, and she provides plenty of inspiration with her busy, colourful illustrations, which include hilarious speech-bubble commentary from the birds themselves."

Even as an adult getting into birding, this light-hearted introduction into the basics is a great way to start. Funny and informative!
