Child’s Book List: Birds
Montessori Approved Books List of Chickens and Other Birds
Our local library is awesome. They have themed bags of books! This week we checked out the books on birds bag and added on a couple extra chicken specific books to help with our study of our backyard chickens. I hope you enjoy this post on Child’s Book List: Birds!
Birds Book List
I have been doing a good bit of research on chicken books to supplement our chicken themed activities for this month. (Check back for an awesome Preschool Chicken Activities post!) Through my research on wonderful chicken books I came across a lot of wonderful bird books that would be great for Montessori learning. I added a quick synopsis of each with an Amazon link (aff) to make it easier for you to add these books to your own collection of Montessori books!
How To Raise Chickens: Everything You Need To Know is an amazing book for adults and children alike. This has a lot of great information on caring for chickens and how to keep them healthy.
Chicks & Chickens is one of my favorite books. Beautiful illustrations meant to educate children about every aspect of the chicken. It includes labeled diagrams of baby chicks, hens, and rooster and wonderful description on how eggs are formed. If you could add only one book to your library, I would choose this one!
Who You Callin’ Chicken? is a funny little book with amazing real life pictures of all types of chickens. Each amazing feature is detailed with awesome pictures and cute descriptions. Well worth picking up.
Birdsongs focuses on the sounds birds make. A poem walks the reader through a typical outdoor day and the types of bird songs one would hear. The books ends with two pages of bird facts like, ” A tiny hummingbird’s wings can flap about forty to eighty times in a second.”
Even an Ostrich Needs a Nest: Where Birds Begin describes that nests of a variety of birds. I was amazed at some of the facts given in this book. I love learning along with my children! There is also a world map included with a list of 40 birds and their location on Earth.
Feathers for Lunch is about a cat on the hunt for a little extra lunch. Although the pictures are simple, I love how each of the birds and plants are labeled by name throughout the book. Very cute story.
Roger Tory Peterson’s Colors: A Book for Little Birdwatchers is perfect for your infant. The pages are very bright colors with a beautiful picture of several different birds associated with a color.
Birds (First Look at Animals) details some of the fun facts of many birds. There are also real life pictures of each bird along with a fun quiz to help test your little readers.
A Nest Full of Eggs (Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out Science, Stage 1) this great book follows the life of a robin from forming inside the egg to its first flight and migration.
How Do Birds Find Their Way? (Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out Science 2) an informative book on bird migration and how they navigate to their destinations.
Owls is a book all about different owl species and their habitats. Anything you want to know about owls is in the book!
Animal Lives: Penguins is a great book to learn about penguins their habitat and much more. The illustrations are inviting and facts displayed throughout the book are fun for young readers.
