|An ID Book for Kids Young and Old and Feeder Too!|
|A Bonus of a Book Plate Signed by Sharon Lovejoy!|
A great way to introduce kids to nature and the joys of bird-watching, My First Bird Book and Bird Feeder combines a full-color illustrated field guide and activity book with a custom-designed, sky blue window feeder.
Sharon Lovejoy, author of Toad Cottages and Shooting Stars, Sunflower Houses, and other uplifting nature and gardening titles, brings her expertise and artistic sensibility to this joyous guide to 34 backyard birds, from the zippy Ruby-throated Hummingbird to the clever Chickadee, who grows extra brain cells during the winter to help remember hidden stashes of food. Lively text delves into each bird’s diet, behavior, range, nests, habitat, and calls; the watercolor illustrations are expressive and meticulously detailed. Additionally, readers will learn how to create a bird journal and whip up a batch of bird food.
The feeder is generous, shaped like a house, fully open in the front for the birds, and with side windows and a porthole for the viewer. The roof protects the feed, and the bottom lip folds open for easy cleaning. Two suction cups hold the feeder to a window.I just love Sharon's illustrations and she knows a thing about nature and birds. It will give the young children in your life a starting place to get them outside and understanding nature. I spent all of the time when I was young outside. This book will give them the perfect start to learning about birds and loving them. It is also National Young Readers' Week! A perfect time for a giveaway!
