My Go-to Bird Book Jan. 17 2012
By Chester42 - Published on Amazon.com
There is little shelf space in my house so I must be selective about which books I keep, but Winging It has a permanent spot. The sheer quantity of beautiful, detailed illustrations and photos allow me to confidently match up what I see outside, rather than just guess from a small photo or two. Fun, informative stories complete the picture, making 'Winging It' a pleasure to use.
Basically a kids book. April 29 2014

This book doesn't have a whole lot in it, seems to be more suited for children. So, keep that in mind.
Perfect for children. May 24 2013

The brief stories have captivated the kids, especially since they become acquainted with the same children in all the stories. The drawings are almost works of art. The information on each bird is interesting and not dry or overwhelming. A wonderful buy.
