    If you and your kids want to learn about birds, and I mean really learn about birds (more than the information provided by little books or field guides), then this is the book for you! Packed with full-color illustrations and photographs and detailed, yet easy-to-read information, bird lovers of all ages will learn something new. The book begins with an up-close-and-personal look at the bird. Learn the finer structures within feathers, types of feathers, bird anatomy and structure including bones and internal organs, types of bills, bird senses, and much more. The second chapter talks about the various places birds call home and which types prefer which environments and habitats. Bird communication, communities, nest preferences, eggs and food are all discussed. The third chapter is in a field guide layout – introducing thirty types of birds with an introduction, size comparison, habitat, bird call, and range across the U.S.A. given. The section ends with a compact chart of all the birds discussed and the essential information about each one. Then students will learn about birds that are endangered and bird migration. The fifth chapter entails how you can interact with birds and make your yard a bird haven. There are some ideas for building projects such as nesting boxes and arbors, and ideas for keeping a calendar of the birds you see and when you see them to learn their schedules. The sixth and final chapter shows the gold-medal winning birds in lots of different events such as fastest runners, highest fliers, deepest divers, best dressed and more with short explanations of which bird species came in first. A glossary, resource list, index, and a short bird-watching quiz are all included in the appendix. So read up and head outside to put your new knowledge to the test! ~ Megan

    By the same publisher as Nature Log, here's one specific to birds. Log sheets ask for particular information, such as wing shape, color, beak shape, etc. This log contains more pages than the Nature Log, and allows bird watchers to keep a running record of birds observed (Life List), and a bird part identification page. It also contains Photo/Artwork pages on which your young naturalist can paste a picture, draw a bird, paste a photo, or glue feathers from observed specimens.

    Children love to learn by reading or listening to stories. This is a fictional account of Peter Rabbit and the birds in Old Orchard. While it is an enjoyable tale, accurate accounts of the different birds (Jenny Wren, the Blackbird family, Carol the Meadowlark, and Spooky the Screech Owl, to name a few) are given pertaining to coloring, habitats, and habits. Black and white illustrations of many of the different birds are included throughout the story. Children will develop not only knowledge and a love of birds, but also a love for nature, including the importance of conservation and preservation of our precious resources. ~ Megan

    Nothing short of a miracle of chemistry- and it fits on your desk, too! Simply connect two pieces to form the bird, tilt the bird's head into a glass of water, and be amazed. Save a brief scientific explanation, the bird will simply bob up and down into the water glass for days on end, assuming adequate water and temperature levels. A perfect desk toy for anyone, whether they are a science-lover or not!

    Wind it up and let it fly! This fun, colorful bird really flaps its wings (based off the ornithopter designs by Da Vinci himself!) and can fly up to 150 feet! Simply wind the enclosed rubber band 50 times, then release the trigger under the right wing as you give it a gentle toss (Remember: it propels itself, so don’t throw it like a glider!) Once you get the hang of it, try changing the position of the tail to see what kind of interesting flight patterns this bird is capable of! The plastic construction makes it very lightweight and sturdy enough to take a rough landing. A spare rubber band is also included, just in case. Happy flying! – Laura

    It is rare to find a book with stories of characters that are full of truth and Godly virtue. This beautiful, 123 page, hardcover book is filled with four such stories. The Bird's Nest is a story of a poor shepherd boy who refuses to show a lovely bird's nest to the crowned prince because of a promise he made to a friend. In the end, his noble character is rewarded and his morals are passed on to the next generation. The next story, The Diamond Ring, features a correspondence of letters between an orphaned brother and sister who by God's grace are taken care of immeasurably better than they ever could have hoped for due to their kind nature and gracious deeds. The Mother's Gift tells of how a gifted Bible reunited a brother and sister who had been separated under unforeseen circumstances. These three stories by Christoph Von Schmid are full of wisdom and truth in regards to Christian character, and the lessons within will greatly bless your family. However, there is one more jewel within this book by an unknown author. The Boy Who Would Not Take a Shilling highlights a young boy who amazes all by his kind and upright nature. A wonderful book full of Christian principles for your whole family to enjoy. - elise
