A very first guide to birds for children aged 3 to 7, this title presents 56 of the most striking and commonly seen southern African species. After a brief introduction that explains how the title works and provides simple guidelines for watching birds, each new page introduces a new bird. Most of the information supplied is visual, in the form of a full colour illustration of the bird and line drawings of food eaten, typical nest and the bird's track. A visual guide to the bird's size is given at the base of the page. The brief text (provided in four languages) highlights interesting or notable facts about the bird.
