Billed as a “kids’ companion” to the National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of North America (2011), this informative title discusses more than 100 species. Each chapter presents birds from one of 10 habitats, such as “Western Backyard Birds,” “City Streets and Parks,” “Southern Swamp and Bayou,” and “Deserts.” Within the chapter, four birds are featured on individual double-page spreads that include color photos, a small painting with physical features labeled, and a range map, as well as discussions of voice, food, and habitat. Each chapter concludes with a spread introducing six more birds through small photos and text that is clearly written. From the publisher’s signature yellow used for page backgrounds and margins to the many excellent photographs, the design makes this bright and inviting. While somewhat younger children may want to start with Annette LeBlanc Cate’s Look Up! Bird-Watching in Your Own Backyard (2013), kids looking for more detail will find this an attractive guidebook. Grades 5-8. --Carolyn Phelan
Selected as a 2014 Outstanding Science Trade Book for Students K-12 by the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) and the Children’s Book Council
"A fun, colorful introduction to 112 species for kids ages 8 and up." --BirdWatching Magazine

After the sections of habitat there are additional 'fun' pages like:How to build a bird feeder, How to make a bird bath, How to build a bird nest, How to draw a bird, 6 things you can do to help birds. There is also an informative index.
Overall, it is much more entertaining than your standard identification guide. Is it missing a lot of birds? Of course! It only actually identifies 62 birds, 6 birds for 10 categories of habitat and 2 birds for 1 of the categories. But, it's not marketed as a field guide, more like a 'spotlight' on birds book.
