If you live in Colorado and like to watch birds, The Kids’ Guide to Birds of Colorado is the perfect book for your collection. This comprehensive guide to Colorado birds includes an introduction to birds, detailed information on each bird in the state, and some activities kids can do to learn more about the birds.

One of the best features of this book is that it’s organized by bird color. Kids only have to observe what the bird’s predominant color is, and can look it up in that color’s section. They don’t have to know if it’s a woodpecker or a raven – only that it’s mostly black. Then they can try to match the birds to the full color picture provided. Each two-page bird spread includes a photo with some up-close shots of things to look for, some interesting facts about the bird, and some cool commentary about the bird’s behavior.

I highly recommend The Kids’ Guide to Birds of Colorado for all Colorado bird watchers.
