How to get your kid to LOVE nature: Ornithology 101


What do you get when you combine a snowy morning, tons of sunflower seeds and our very first non-fiction book checked out from kiddie section at the library?
The Pebble First Guide to Songbirds

A very happy Claire spent the morning counting birds at our feeder and marveling that her feathered friends had their very own book! Is she too young to begin studying for an ornithology degree? The book we checked out was "The Pebble First Guide to Songbirds" and it contained nearly all the birds in our area with little factoids about each species. There were a few of our frequent visitors missing, (Juncos, Tufted Titmouse, Red-Bellied Woodpecker) so I might have to improvise a guidebook of my own one of these days.

  1. Hello! Thanks for stopping by NurtureStore and taking the time to comment - great to meet you! My oldest daugther expecially loves non-fiction books and I think it's a great way to extend their learning about whatever they're interested in. I wondered if you might like to come and join our Play Academy idea swap on Fridays - you would be very welcome. Cathy :)

  2. How great for her to see the birds from the book, right outside the window!

  3. I'll have ot see if I can find that one. It looks perfect for our bird studies right now.
