By Barbara J. Teeter on May 22, 2008
I bought two copies of this book intending to give them to my siblings who live in Minnesota. One copy never left my home because my three-year-old grandson loves it. He's too young to read, but he often grabs it for reading time instead of Dr. Seuss. He's learned the names of most of the birds, and each time we look at it with him, he asks new questions. He knows that we can find what sounds the birds make, what they eat, how big they are, etc. The pictures are page-size beautiful photographs, not just drawings. The format is colorful, easy to use, and geared for young people (but our interest age ranges from 3 to 60!). Warning: you may find yourself investing in bird feeders.

We purchased this book for our young grandchildren who suddenly "found" the birds outside at the bird feeders. This book is easy to use to find birds. It has great pictures for the little ones and will be valuable for them to continue to use as they grow older. Very detailed in all aspects of the bird, from habitat, to babies to migration etc. One important fact that isn't mentioned in this book's description is that it has very DURABLE PAGES. Its like each page is double thickness and has been "sealed" together. This means it is VERY DIFFICULT TO TEAR THE PAGES! What a plus with little ones! This book will last much longer than I ever expected or hoped for!

This is a fabulous book, and you don't need to wait until kids can read. My grandson had the pictures memorized at age 4 and learned to spot many species in the wild even before he could read. Bought another copy for myself because it's so comprehensive and well organized. I hope it never goes out of print!

Of the many bird books I have seen, this one is by far the best for youth. It has nice big pictures and tons of good info about each bird. It focuses on about 100 of the more common birds in MN and devotes two whole, large pages to each bird. It gives lots of info about each bird--what they eat, where to find them, what their call sounds like, what their migration is like, and on and on. My son loves it (and I like it better than my other bird books). Its only disadvantage is it's smaller number of birds. It has every bird you're likely to see in MN, but it's not exhaustive.

I bought this book for my son, but I spend as much time delving into it as he does, and it is one of the books he has taken to carrying with him on road-trips. It is subtitled "A Youth's Guide to Birds of Minnesota", but if you are an "adult," don't let that stop you from reading this book. I happen to like a generous helping of pictures with my facts, and I enjoy reading information presented to me in a format with colorful graphics and sidebars. This book provides all of that while offering up a healthy dose of bird info - the birds' common and scientific names, size, markings, general meanings of calls, natural history, habitat, diet, life cycles, time of activity, migration, nesting, flight and movement specifics, locations, and fun or gross (yet always interesting) facts. We also have the NAS Field Guide to Birds (Eastern) which also has beautiful pictures and lots of info, but "Wild About Minnesota Birds" is the one we run for first.

I have purchased 2 of these for my grandchildren since they were devastated when the first one was inadvertently left outside (by the bird nest and feeders) in the rain. it is a great book with lots of great pictures and information.

Excellent book with great pictures. Even though it is supposed to be for kids it is just as helpful to adults. Especially if you are a beginning birder. Bought it on Amazon....always can count on good shipping and service.

We checked this out from the library, but will be owning our own copy soon. I was so impressed with the layout and format of the book - a colorful, picture-filled book with just the right amount of info for each species. It's just right for both kids and grownups. I like to see scientific books that take children and their interests seriously: the pictures and fun facts are great for learning, and it's not dumbed down at all. This will be the only birding guide we'll need for many years.
