Baby birds are hatching all over the place so you might be getting more questions than usual from your youngest naturalists about our feathery neighbors. About Birds: A Guide for Children by Cathryn Sill is an excellent, kid friendly introduction to many common (and not so common) birds and how they live. With very little text per page and lovely illustrations you can introduce children to nesting, eggs, habitats and more.
The main part of the book is extremely simple with the pictures sharing most of the information but for those hungry for more the afterword adds greater detail (but not too much). Take this book with you on a wandering (and wondering) walk through the yard and see if you can find a feather, a robin, an eagle's nest or a hummingbird. Go outside and have an adventure!
