With wonderful photos and descriptions of birds around the world.  This book is a wonderful beginning to learn about the specific parts of the bird, evolution versus creation and different birds.

Our Experience:  B and C were really excited to receive this book.  As soon as this book came in the mail we had to open the package, go outside and begin reading.  I decided that we would read about some of the birds first and then we would go to the Introduction and the section on intelligent design.  B and C had a lot of fun taking turns picking which bird we would learn about.  They couldn’t get enough of learning about each kind of bird.  Later on we sat down and read the other sections.  B and C did not find the introduction with technicalities of evolution versus creationism very interesting, but they knew it was very important.  We all enjoyed reading the section about how God designed the bird species. 

What I Liked:

  • Birds were listed in alphabetical order.
  • The introduction was very important because it shows us how evolution doesn’t work and how many scientists are turning from it.
  • The photos of each bird were very good.
  • The sidebar about each individual bird with included a “special design feature,” “Did you know?” and scientific names.

What I Disliked:

  • Nothing!  This book was wonderful.

What B (boy, age seven) Liked and Disliked: I liked this book Open-mouthed smile.  I like learning about birds and how God created them.  My favorite bird is the cardinal.  My favorite bird in this book was the cassowary.  I like the casque (horny growth like a helmet), because it looks cool.  If you want to learn more buy this book!  I think this book is very good for kids my age.  

What C (girl, age five) Liked and Disliked:  I liked everything about this book.  Thumbs up  My favorite bird in this book was the bald eagle.  The bald eagle is mostly black and it has a yellow beak and talons with a white head.  I liked the Introduction and the section on intelligent design.  This book is good for kids my age!    

I would highly recommend this book!  It should be in every library.
