This hardback book features fun facts about all the birds you see in your backyard, at school or at the park, with a double spread dedicated to each feathered friend.
What makes this book rather special is the added bonus of a button on each page, which when pressed plays a recorded bird song matched to each documented species.
There are 12 species covered – Tawny Frogmouth, Sulphurcrested Cockatoo, Rainbow Lorikeet, Laughing Kookaburra, Superb Fairy wren, Noisy Miner, Pied Butcherbird, Australian Magpie, Pied Currawong, Willie Wagtail, Silvereye and Welcome Swallow. Our children are loving the familiarity of the bird sounds and learning a little more about our regular backyard visitors.
We think A First Book Of: Australian Backyard Bird Sons by Fred van Gessel would make a fantastic gift for any child showing an interest in wildlife.
