Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Including the red-winged blackbird, painted bunting, wood duck, great blue heron, ruby-throated hummingbird, purple finch, and blue jay, 46 different species of birds from all parts of the United States are included in this book. The pictures have been faithfully redrawn by Paul E. Kennedy from originals by John James Aububon (1785–1851), the most famous American painter-naturalist.
For each species, the caption supplies the modern common and scientific names and the current range (by general region). No distinction is made between breeding range and winter range. Only the area of the United States, exclusive of Alaska and Hawaii, is considered. The birds shown are usually adult males when the caption does not give the information on age and sex.
Audubon's original plates, numbered to correspond to the pages of the book, have been reproduced in color on the covers. If you follow them, you will not only have a great deal of coloring pleasure, but you will also learn how to identify many important birds.

I purchased several of these coloring books to use during a first grade lesson on birds and Audubon, the artist. After learning all about Audubon, each student selected one page from the book, and referred to the colored images on the book's cover to color the page as realistically as possible. It was exciting for them to have real Audubon pictures of their own. The paper quality is excellent (not flimsy like many cheap coloring books). Many of the students asked to take an extra page home. The little descriptions on the bottom of each page were helpful, as they gave the name of the bird and a brief description of the image. I purchased a few extra to give to the teacher for future lessons.

Paul E. Kennedy's renderings of 36 of John James Audubon's birds into "Audubon's Birds of America Coloring Book" make art accessible to anyone with a few bucks.

The colorer has two approaches to a finished product: (1) go wild, use the imagination, use colors of your choice, or (2) try to recreate Audubon's colors.

The pages are nicely done, including enough detail for advanced colorers, and certainly large enough (11 x 8) to have fun displaying the completed artwork. The quality of the paper certainly surpasses that of most common coloring books.

Among the included birds are these: American Flamingo, Purple Finch, Screech Owl, Brown pelican (my state bird), Robin, White-throated Sparrow, Brown Thrasher, and, of course, the Wild Turkey.

In case the colorer does not have an actual Audubon book for a guide, Kennedy includes three pages of small illustrations from Audubon's book.

One could spend a pleasant hour doing something else, but an hour with Audubon, an array of coloring tools before you, Haydn's "Piano Concerto No 2" with Maurizio Pollini on the CD player, and a cup of coffee in reach--now there's an hour of bliss!

This is a great way to entroduce anyone to the joy of bird watching. Reading descriptions below each picture, and seeing fully illustrated versions that are included are also helpful. Taking the time to learn the shape and coloring of each bird, helps to really learn to identify a specific bird when it is seen later. This is a fun hobby for adults also. A great way to be artistic, if you have only a little talent in drawing.

I loved this book. It has great detail and has pictures of the real birds to help you when you color. For Kids or Adults. Has helped me know my birds when I see them and has fullfilled my need to be artistic when I am not.

I purchased this book for my 6th grader who homeschools. This is fun addition I added to his studies on bird anatomy and a bit of history of Audubon. It's nice for assignments and artwork, that is also enjoyable.
