    Birds, bugs, and bats – if it flies, it's explored in this fascinating introduction to zoology! The first portion of the book focuses on birds and their unique characteristics. Kids will learn bird anatomy, how they are able to fly, why they build nests, how they raise their young, and more. They'll also learn to identify the birds they see every day and do activities that explore the habits and preferences of different species of birds. Students will learn about bats, some of the most useful and wonderful flying creatures in the world. As they study the physical characteristics and lifestyle of the bat, they'll gain a new appreciation for these creatures. Finally, kids will get up close and personal to the insect world. They'll learn how to identify and classify the many different types of bugs they see, and they'll even get to design their own experiments with different insect species. Kids will get the opportunity to keep their own field journals as they are encouraged to be their own scientist as they observe and understand the world around them.

    This fun-filled educational game teaches horse lovers of all ages how to recognize horses by breed, color, and marking. Three different adventures take players through a learning journey of 32 different breeds. The first is called Mustang Adventure, and players are Mustang ranch escapees trying to survive in the wild. Players compete to gather a large herd of mares and foals and keep them safe from danger. In the second adventure, Rancher's Roundup, players are on the other side of the fence as ranchers trying to recapture their horses by brand and be the first to herd them to Green Valley. The third adventure, Rancher's Revenge, is a strategy game as you round up horses by groupings including breed, color, and markings. Game contains rules for all 3 of these variations, 3 solitaire games, 55 horse cards in full color displaying the horse on the front (all have cool names like Bustin' Dust or Thunderbolt) and information about them on the back, 4 playing pieces, adventure cards, game board, die, and a booklet containing rules of play, horse information and a reading list. Whether players are ranchers or wild mustangs, they are sure to have lots of fun and learn a lot on the way! ~ Megan

    How much "horse sense" do you have? You don't have to know a lot about horses to play this game - but being able to recognize a horse's body language will help! Start out by select four stunning horse photographs and place them on one of four horse stall boards. Draw a Horse Description Card. Players will then vote on these four horses according to three different categories: Horse Story, Horse Word, and Horse Award. The Horse Story is a few sentences of narration about the horse. If players come across a word they don't know, they consult the included glossary. Players vote secretly and reveal their votes simultaneously. They score points when voti for the same horse as other players. After scoring points using the scoring tokens, players secretly choose which horse they will take home and keep as their own. Players will learn about horse breeds, temperament, and vocabulary. This Ravensburger game includes a horse glossary, 100 horse photograph cards, 60 description/story cards, 1 game board, 1 die, voting tiles, and 24 scoring tokens. 3-4 players. ~ Ruth

    How well do you know your birds? In this game, the fewer clues you need to figure out the type of bird, the more points you'll score. The game is composed of 300 cards (at three different levels), with each card showing a photograph of the bird on one side and five clues and the name of the bird on the other. One player acts as the reader and reads the first clue to the player on their left, who is the answerer. If the answerer can name the bird after the first clue, they receive 5 points, if they need two clues, they get 4 points, etc, down to 0 points if they can't identify it. Then they become the new reader and play passes around the table. Whoever has the most points after eight rounds wins. For 2+ players.

    What lives longer a toucan or a warthog? Like the Timeline games by the same company, your job is to place your cards correctly in relation to the cards already on the table. Each player is dealt four cards, with a beautiful illustration of an animal on the front, and the same illustration on the back along with three important details: the animal's size, weight, and lifespan.

    In Dinosaurs, players are challenged to place cards by length or weight, so this deck is compatible with Animals if you are playing with one of those characteristics. Please note that this deck includes evolutionary content.

    Players choose which of the three characteristics to play by, flip one card over in the playing area so the information is visible, and then take turns trying to place their cards on the right places around the ones on the table. Once you think you have your card placed correctly, turn it over to check if you were right. Correctly placed cards stay information side up, wrongly placed cards are discarded and players draw a new card. As you can tell, the more cards on the table, the harder it is to place new cards! The first player to run out of cards wins. Quick to learn and easy to play, you also can't help but learn some new facts! This is a great game to play with people of all ages with no big advantages to older players. We pulled this one out last time Grandma and Grandpa were here, and out of all three generations, our 7-yr old won! 2-8 people can play, rounds take about 15 minutes, and the 110 cards are packaged in a nice little tin. If you enjoy this one, try Cardline: Globetrotter for geography! Steph

On the left, you will find the common and scientific name, a summary paragraph and specific details including location found, diet, size, description of eggs and more. The opposite side has a beautiful, lifelike image of the bird, and a “Did you know” statement. The book itself is composed of thicker, board book type pages. The sound module is encased in durable plastic and is attached to the book. Each bird’s sound button has a lifelike picture of the bird’s face that matches the image inside the book. A list of the included birds is the House Wren, American Goldfinch, Red-Winged Black Bird, Killdeer, House Finch, Great Horned Owl, Blue Jay, American Robin, Northern Cardinal, Mourning Dove, American Crow and the Song Sparrow. Don’t be surprised if your children are outside playing and come running to share the name of the bird singing from the trees! Book measures approximately 8 3/4 x 8 1/4”. ~ Deanne

    Setting up camp on your dining table is as easy as unfolding the game board – it's the questions on the path to the camp that may challenge you. With simple game play that focuses more on outdoor education rather than on competition, your family will be able to jump right into this board game. Players start at the camp and must answer multiple choice questions as they wander through the wilderness path on the board. The question cards each contain four questions at different difficulty levels, with players selecting their level at the beginning of the game. Questions test a wide range of animal and nature knowledge for the entire family, and the upper level questions can definitely be a challenge. When we played, one time around the board made for a very quick game with two players, so you might want to go around a couple of times. For up to 8 players. - Zach

    Honestly, of all the books about horses that I've ever seen, this is the one that I would consider the horse Bible. This was the first horse book that I ever owned and through it I got one of the most wonderful horses in the world - but more about that later. The lengthy introduction covers horse breeds, types, temperaments, relatives, conformation, life cycle, color patterns, markings, gaits, sporting and working events, saddles, bridles, bits, origins and more. These pages are packed full of information, pictures, illustrations, etc. The meat of the book is devoted to discussing over 100 individual horse breeds, divided into three sections: ponies, light horses, and heavy horses. Most breeds receive a two-page spread and a plethora of information about that breed including environment, origin, temperament, breeding, characteristics, colors, and uses. Pages also include a map section with a highlighted area of the region the horse originated from, a key showing the types of horses which influenced the breed and the traits that they passed to it, and a silhouette illustration of the horse standing next to a 6' tall man for size comparison along with size ranges. Front and center, of course, is a photograph of the horse which takes up the majority of the page with distinctive points of conformation marked out to assist with breed identification. The end pages include a glossary of equine lingo that not all are familiar with and an index so you can flip back to your favorite breed easily until you have the page memorized. This book was also my art inspiration (horses are the only thing I draw at all well), and I often took this book with me as a guide when I was drawing - my goal was to draw all the breeds, but I never got that accomplished! Besides educating me, this book did something else for me - it was in this book I saw my first picture of a Friesian (pg. 116!!) and then and there I decided that I had to have one at some point in my life (not knowing at the time how expensive they are). I had never even touched one before last spring where, because of this book, I decided that I would do my required internship (for the horse program I was in) at a Friesian breeding facility. I had never seen one up close, but they were still on my mind, so I located a farm up in Minnesota. After two weeks there my dreams came true - my bosses gifted me with an almost two-year old Friesian cross (that's right, he's only half Friesian, but he is gorgeous!) which I named Tonto. It was truly one of the most amazing things that ever happened to me and, of course, I owe it to God and this amazing book! ~ Megan

    A lone little burro roams his home in the Grand Canyon, but his affinity for company, often in the form of people with flapjacks, gets him mixed up in more adventures than he ever counted on. After his friend dies, Brighty (named after the Bright Angel Creek) is kind of on his own. He does have one other friend that he summers with and who is willing to help out – as long as nobody tries to make him do anything he doesn't want to do! Brighty ends up in scrapes with cougars and mountain lions, meets President Teddy Roosevelt, and even helps with the search for the murderer of his friend. Through it all his huge heart, antics, and unique character will keep readers smiling. ~ Megan

      The Animal Kingdom is one of the most fascinating aspects of planet earth. Millions of species exist: flying, walking, and swimming on our planet. This visually stunning book may not capture them all, but it certainly hits the highlights! Inside are over 2,500 animals, complete with over 1,000 color photographs. This vast array begins with introducing the Animal Kingdom and is divided into convenient chapters: Mammals, Birds, Reptiles, Amphibians, Fish, Arthropods, and Other Invertebrates. Chapters are loosely organized into sub-sections such as “Big Cats,” “Dogs, Wolves, and Foxes,” etc. While the book’s main strength is the incredible visual presentation, each page contains brief entries providing a concise animal overview, a “card” with the common & scientific name, size, habitat, and food preferences. Rounding out entries are concise “About Me”, “Fun Facts,” “ROAR,” and “Surprisingly Human” boxes to maintain reader interest. An excellent choice for any “general interest” animal lover!
