This book takes readers outside both day and night and through the seasons to see and hear all the sights and sounds of the birds around us. The illustrations are fun and use the sounds of the birds to direct the readers eye to all the cool sounds they make. Accurate scientific information accompanies all of the fun of heading out to go bird watching!
Every kind of bird has their very own kind of sound! Cheerful sounds, mournful sounds, sweet sounds, weird sounds. Identification will happen without even opening your eyes. And what fun to sing along with an owl or any bird! John Himmelman knows those sounds well and loves to share his enthusiasm for birds. He explains how to call birds by "pishing," gives tips on how to attract birds by feeding them, how to make your list of birds, and more. John is the creator of "The Big Sit!"—an event in which participants all over the planet choose one spot, a 17-foot circle, to count all the birds they see and hear in 24 hours.
A perfect book for:
- parents and teachers needing homeschool materials for kindergarten (or any grade!)
- anyone looking for singalong books for kids
- anyone looking for children's books to help instill an appreciation of our planet!
