I hope you’re ready for a life of adventure! If not, please don’t buy this book. Put it down and walk away. There are some other nice books on that table over there. But if you are, this book will help you to identify every single bird in South Africa. Easily! Along the way you will learn fun and funny facts about everything from space to superheroes, with some bird stuff too.
The first ever full field guide made just for kids. A radical new approach, with minimal text and maximum fun. Faansie’s Bird Book covers every single bird that occurs regularly in South Africa (722 in all!). But it doesn’t get caught up with complex and boring technicalities. It’s a whole new way of birding – kids, you’re gonna loooooove it!
- Covers 722 species in total.
- Every bird in SA, not just a few common or obvious ones.
- But no super rare vagrants or species that occur only outside South Africa’s borders.
- Short and fun family introductions, but no long and boring texts for all the species.
- Birds are divided into 12 logical groups, like Swimmers, Flyers, Runners and Perchers. Easy!
- Tick the bird right there on the plate! Each counts a different number of points in the Bird Nerd Game.
- Loads of useful “Top Tips” and fascinating “did-you-know” boxes, plus ridiculous “micro-facts”.
- Questions and challenges to make it interactive (the answers are in the back).
Birds will change your child's life
