"The full-color illustrations by wildlife artist John Sill are so lifelike that one almost expects the birds to fly off the pages...a wonderful visual introduction..." ?Booklist
"Exceptionally detailed and uniformly accurate...the Sills succeed admirably." ?School Library Journal, * STARRED REVIEW *
"Fifteen exquisite, scrupulously accurate watercolors of birds in their habitats are captioned by a deceptively simple text...An excellent concept book that takes its young audience seriously while skillfully providing the basics of an important subject." ?Kirkus Reviews (pointer review)
--School Library Journal,

l also want to collect books of quality and education value for the children. For instance I do include the Little Golden Book about the Nativity for the kid bags during the Advent/Christmas season. That is a nice book and faithful to the Gospel. I do tolerate some more text than usual in that book.
I have to pick and choose carefully for the kid bags books. Short usually, nice visuals, little or no text usually, with educational and/or Christian value, and no noise-making apparatus connected to the book. Anyway, I originally ordered just one of the About Birds books to look it over. Now, I have ordered 10 more for the kid bags. I am thrilled with this book. It couldn't be better for the kid bags.
Follow-on review: Our son is now 24-months old and still loves this book. It really is a treasure - you won't be dissapointed!
