By Chris Colin
Bird Songs: 250 North American Birds in Song
Edited by Les Beletsky
Narrated by the birds themselves
Ages 2 to adult, $50
An auditory field guide to birds of the United States and Canada, this book will delight toddlers, preschoolers, and beginning readers, although it's marketed to adults. It's packed with authentic hoots, tweets, honks, and chirps. The youngest budding birders will need help from a parent or caregiver to punch in the numbers next to birds they'd like to hear, such as the horned grebe and the barred owl. Songs and calls are drawn from the authoritative recordings of the Macaulay Library at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
The bottom line: A sweet sonic field guide for birders of all ages.
