A partial synopsis from Bas Bleu: Geared toward the youngest of birders, this handy little board book may actually become a resource for the whole family! A dozen common backyard birds are profiled—from a house wren to a great horned owl to a song sparrow—with a detailed illustration, interesting facts, and (best of all!) an audio recording of each one's unique song.
My Thoughts: This delightful book was a Christmas gift for a child that is very special to us. It is filled with beautiful illustrations along with recordings of song birds. While Handsome Husband and I were looking through it prior to wrapping, our Kati Cat became very curious. As we played the songs, she began sniffing and pawing at the book! I guess she thinks they are pretty life like! Handsome Husband played the Mourning Dove several times. That one was his favorite, but I think I enjoyed the owl the most.
Our Cutie Pie recipient of this book loved it, easily pressing the button that matched bird we were reading about. This present was a big hit!
