Just recently, I had the pleasure of reading through Kathie M Thomas’ Children’s Bird Book.

The book has some beautiful photographs of birds, taken by Kathie herself, in the Dandenong Ranges.  This picture book is an excellent choice for any young child.  She has written a short but pertinent account on each of them in very easy to read and understand language that children will most certainly enjoy, readily interpreting the pictures and making connections to the birds they see.

I have to admit, I learned from the book too!  The diary at the back of the book is a superb idea and is a good incentive for children to learn about bird life in their surroundings and document what they see.
