Whether you're 5 years old or 65, it's never too late to get to know the feathered friends
in your backyard, and learning their songs will open your eyes to a whole new world.
Therefore this beautifully illustrated sound guide is the perfect way to introduce both
children and ...adults to the wonders of bird song.
Each of the 12 species covered - Morepork, Kaka, Sacred Kingfisher, Grey Warbler,
Silvereye, Bellbird, Tui, Fantail, Chaffinch, Song Thrush, Blackbird and Starling - has a
short description explaining some fascinating facts about that bird. Then the reader
can press the relevant button on the panel on the side of the book and a short burst of
the bird's song will be played via the accompanying speaker.
The book is aimed in particular at children, but is great fun for all the family and perfect
for helping to foster an interest in the amazing wildlife that lives right alongside us
in our homes. It's ideal for keeping on the windowsill overlooking the backyard. The
species covered have been specially selected as ones that will occur in and around
most backyards in the country, however big or small. If you need a reminder of the
twittering and fluty song of the Tui, or the Chaffinch's cascade of notes, it is simply a
case of pushing the button.
All in all this is a perfect title for anyone, young or old, who enjoys the natural world
and listening to the songs and calls of our familiar backyard birds.
