    One of the most common questions that I am asked is how can we get our internet and video game addicted kids interested in the out of doors Since I am an internet addicted semi adult, I can say that one way to get kids interested in nature is to make it accessible to them, and perhaps the best way to do this is through books.A new field guide was just published whose target audience is kids between the ages of 8 and 12 years old This remarkable book, The Young Birder s Guide to Birds of Eastern North America NYC Houghton Mifflin 2008 was written by Bill Thompson III, under the close supervision of his daughter, Phoebe, and her elementary school classmates, who are part of the book s targeted demographics.Each page of this field guide is a self contained bundle of information about one bird species It includes the common and scientific names for the bird, its length in inches, a color photograph along with a pencil drawing that depicts a particular behavior, a color coded range map of the United States depicting the species seasonal distributions, and several well written sections Look For is a listing of useful field marks as they appear in both good and poor light Listen For describes the species songs and call notes Remember provides useful information such as how to distinguish the bird from look alike species, a characteristic behavioral feature or ecological preference or former names and a Wow fact in a circle that describes some special aspect of the species, such as how the prothonotary warbler got its weird name, how wood duck ducklings get to the ground from their nest high in a tree, or the unique Latin of the red eyed vireo s scientific name To encourage kids to keep a life list, there is a check box and space at the bottom of each page that can be marked to indicate when and where the bird was first seen.In the front of the book are 43 pages of basic information such as Getting Started in Birding , Be Green Ten Things You Can Do for the Birds and Birding Manners which at least a few adults should read and take to heart, also One thing I was especially amused by was the picture of the author s daughter, Phoebe, dressed up in typical birding gear with various parts of a bird watcher labeled, just as bird morphology is labeled in other field guides In the back is a list of birding resources, a 6 page glossary, and a 4 page index.The book s design, the flexi bind cover, and all of the 300 color photographs, including those on the cover, were chosen by Phoebe and her classmates Perhaps best of all, the book is written in an accessible and engaging way that doesn t patronize kids.I recommend this wonderful little book for helping kids to learn about and appreciate birds But you don t have to take my word for it in recognition of the effort that an entire classroom of kids invested into this book, I recruited my colleagues kids here at ScienceBlogs to review this book, and will add links to their reviews when they are published Further, even though this book is designed by kids for kids, I think beginning and casual adult birders might also appreciate this book as they familiarize themselves with their new avocation.NOTE Originally published at on 18 May 2008.

    This book is outstanding Perfect for everyone, I especially enjoyed the fun fact for each bird Every nature center and bird store should offer copies.

    Before you ever get to the birds, this guide has plenty of introductory material making the hobby accessible to young people, from necessary equipment to bird watching manners in the field I would carry this guide around with me, and I m definitely putting it in my school library.
