This is a wonderful nature book for children. In it, they will learn about the Citizen Scientists’ Christmas Bird Count. The reader watches as a young girl, her mom and Big Al go out on a cold winter’s day to record all of the birds that they see; the reader learns about how the count takes place as, for example, a bird must be seen by at least two people for it to be counted. Along the way, there are facts about different birds and their calls; the birds can easily be found in the appealing illustrations.
There is bonus content at the end of the book. Information is there about both the birds and the author. There is also a section on additional resources.
This is a very good book for children who would like to know more about birds. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this e book in exchange for an honest review.
