THOUGHTS ABOUT MY FIRST BOOK OF CANADIAN BIRDS
Are you interested in teaching your preschool or kindergarten child about Canadian birds, but don’t know where to start? Or perhaps you are already a nature-loving family but you would enjoy reading a book about Canadian birds! My First Book of Canadian Birds is a sweet and beautiful book for young children. My preschooler really enjoyed it when I read it out loud.
Each colourful, two-page spread introduces a bird you might see in Canada. From the familiar American Robin to the Common Loon, this book covers 14 species, many of which you are likely to encounter outdoors.
Any child who has this book read to them will surely become more interested in birds! So why not try reading it and then hang a bird feeder or a hummingbird feeder, or plant some sunflowers to attract birds to your yard. Or you could read this book and then go on a nature walk to see what birds you can find in your area. I highly recommend this colourful book for young kids as an excellent way to learn more about Canadian birds.
