Review

." . . informative and well-written book."

." . . a charming introduction that focuses on a very limited number of birds of the Southwest."

""Winging It" provides an informative introduction to the lives and habits of 42 southwestern birds, grouped by habitat. . . engaging and inspiring."

"If you have or know a young person interested in birds, this is the perfect book. It is a well-presented and beautifully illustrated introduction to Southwest birds."

"This is one of the neatest books of its kind that I've seen. It contains a plethora of illustrations, both drawings and photographs, and abundant scientific information about the birds of our region."

""Winging It" fills a relatively neglected bird guide niche, that is for the interested child reader. Yet, it is informative for any age. What a pleasure to find such a thoughtful, professional book geared to our local area."

"This lovely book describes 42 bird species found in the Southwest. The format includes photographs, graphics, a glossary on each bird, and fun narratives that teach where a bird lives, where it nests, and where and when it migrates. . . good bedtime reading."

"A young reader who finishes the book will acquire a basic introduction to bird biology. Appealing in layout, colorful in design, and printed on heavy paper, this book has a strong, glossy board binding that will stand up through years of wear. Attractively priced, it belongs in every Southwestern schoool and public library, and it makes a great gift for budding young birders."

""Winging It" provides an informative introduction to the lives and habits of 42 southwestern birds, grouped by habitat. . . . engaging and inspiring."

"Entire families and all ages with Southwest residence or affiliation will discover a treasure trove of detail in "Winging It: A Beginner's Guide To Birds Of The Southwest", an ideal guidebook, especially for the novice birdwatcher, to birds of the Southwest. . . Highly recomended."

"This unique, beautifully illustrated nature book for children and young adults features 42 birds of the Southwest. Each species is portayed in meticulous detail. . . . The whole book, with its thick, glossy pages, has been created with such loving care, it might well become a classic nature book for children."

"A kid-friendly beginner's book that will delight bird lovers of all ages. . . . The design of the book is pleasing and comprehensive, and includes striking, clear photographs, engaging drawings of birds, nests, eggs, and tracks, bird-related quotations, amusing stories of child-bird backyard encounters, and even a mini-glossary at each chapter's end."

HASH(0xa77156d8) out of 5 stars My Go-to Bird Book Jan. 17 2012
By Chester42 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
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.
HASH(0xa7fac8c4) out of 5 stars Perfect for children. May 24 2013
By Cynthia Coulter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
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.
HASH(0xa742fd2c) out of 5 stars Basically a kids book. April 29 2014
By J. Cook - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book doesn't have a whole lot in it, seems to be more suited for children. So, keep that in mind.
