I'm Giving Away The Field Guide to Birds - grandma's bookshelf!

The Field Guide to Birds: Explore Southern Asia and Oceania
Written by Nancy Honovich
Illustrated by - March Dando and Ryan Hobson  
Publisher - Silver Dolphin
Ages - 8+


Favorite Features -
  • introduces you to eight exotic birds from Southern Asia to Oceania
  • includes 59 pieces to assemble each bird and a removable diorama
  • each bird includes info as to where it lives with a map, drawings and interesting facts about each bird such as where they nest, info on their mating, how they care for chicks and what they eat
I enjoy books which allow me to learn about some of the amazing creatures God made . . . this book has beautiful illustrations, interesting facts and mini bird "sculptures" for you to make . . . it is a wonderful book! I found the information about these birds fascinating, but particularly the info about the Southern Cassowary - this bird can grow to be six feet tall! The illustrations are amazing and the bird sculpture/puzzles are an added bonus! If you give this book to your grandchild  be sure to talk with them about these amazing birds - ask them which is their favorite and which one they found to be the most interesting or surprising. Lead them in thanking God for creating such varied and wonderful birds!


I'm delighted to say Silver Dolphin sent me a book for review and is making another available for give-away!
