Counting Birds: The Idea That Helped Save Our Feathered Friends

Counting Birds is a new non-fiction title by Heidi Stemple. Due out 2nd Oct, 2018, it's 32 pages and available in hardcover.  Aimed at younger readers (ages 6-8ish), it would make a really nice read along for younger children as well. 

Beautifully illustrated by Clover Robin, the artwork is mixed media painted collage and does a lovely job of enhancing the text.  The book is based around the life and early bird counts started by Frank Chapman which grew into the Audubon Christmas bird count.

It's so important to include young people in learning about our world and wise stewardship of our environment.  This book would make really good support material for a classroom unit on conservation and birding.

It's a really worthwhile and appealing book.  I loved the detail in the drawings. 

Five stars.
