Using this book in the context of 4th grade and 6th grade homeschool nature study. Very good. Wish it came with a CD of bird calls.

This book has it all -- great facts, appealing layout, detailed and useful illustrations. The writing is superb, taking into account an older child's point of view. It's a significant step up from most similar books for children. It should provide families with hours of enjoyment and learning.

It's a great book to learn about different types of birds.

I am using this book as part of my 3rd graders science for this year and we are really enjoying it.

This birding guide, with its basic descriptions and large glossy pictures, seems geared for younger people. But novice adult birders and even seasoned birders will probably also find this book helpful. I've dabbled in bird-watching, but found tidbits of information here that I'd never garnered on any of my bird walks.

I learned that most adult birds don't live in their nests. They sleep perched nearby, except when they are incubating eggs or in very inclement weather. I also learned where a wishbone is in a bird and about the crucial role it plays in flight. I learned about a bird's respiratory system, which is a very different, 2-phase arrangement from a human's simple inhale/exhale process. I learned how to quickly distinguish a tree swallow from a barn swallow, and a song sparrow from a house wren.

This book is not a pocket field guide. It's too large to put in a pocket. But by skimming through it before you go on your bird-walks, you can prepare yourself to identify what you are likely to see. It only covers the thirty or so birds most common on the North American Continent. Each bird is described in spritely, personal terms - as opposed to the dry, Latin-laden language you find in many guidebook compendiums. For example, the authors of this book describe the downy woodpecker as having a splotch of "ketchup" on its crown.

The birds are arranged according to their predominant color, moving from black through the brighter colors. There's a color-code tab on the top of each page, so if you are looking for a tan bird, you can easily turn to the appropriate section. The subject bird is shown in full-color photograph and also in small silhouette to aid identification. The silhouette is placed besides a figurative apple to indicate the bird's size by comparison. There's a transliteration of each bird's vocalizations, and a map showing its seasonal range.

At the back of the book, there's a section that might be of special interest to younger readers who usually relish superlatives. There's a profile of the biggest bird, the fastest, the longest-living, etc. There are also sections giving easy-to-follow directions on dealing with injured or baby birds, on building birdhouses, and on journaling your observations in the field.

While some of the more famous bird guides might give almost too much "just-the facts ma'am" information, this book is user-friendly and inviting. Rather than making the bird the subject of a persnickety study, an approach that bird-watching sometimes has the reputation for fostering - this book gives the simple joy of a bird in the hand.

What's That Bird? is a wonderful supplement for any nature study (especially for homeschoolers). It is perfect for kids ages 7-12. In the beginning, there are pictures of the different types of feathers birds have. Then, a bird's body is illustrated with its anatomy identified. The diagrams are clear and easy to understand. From there, you will learn so much about birds. 75 of the most common birds are in a bird identification guide. The writing is clear and concise and is for a 5th or 6th grade reading level. I shared this book with a friend who grew up bird watching and she loved it. I know so little about birds, but I want to learn to appreciate them with my children. This book will be a wonderful resource for our nature studies. I highly recommend it. I also recommend The Nature Connection as a complementary resource to draw and write about the birds you observe. The books go well together.

Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this book from Storey Publishing for review.
