The Backyard Birdsong Guide

O and I gave Elliott this book for his birthday, and it is VERY cool! It has 75 different birds with 130 different sounds. We all love this book, and I'm sure it is going to be a wonderful learning tool for us!


  1. Hello, my name is stormie and i have a 2 year old daughter and have been following your blog for about a month now and have been wondering what state you guys live in?? I love all the ideas you have given me to interact, and teach my little one! thanks!

  2. We have the international bird book made by the same is a great book for all ages, isn't it?

  3. We used to go to our local state park's nature program for kids. They had these "beanie baby" type birds. When you squeezed them they made the real bird sound.

    I'll check into this book, though because it's probably much cheaper, my daughter loves books, and she loves birds. It's scary, but at 7 she can identify more birds by sound and sight than I can (thanks to dad).
