Grab a bird book and a child!

Today marks Read Across America, sponsored by the National Education Association and held on or near March 2 -- the birthday of Dr. Seuss. Even Google commemorates Dr. Seuss' birthday:


Which books related to birds and nature do you consider good to give to and read with children? Please share your suggestions.

I like "Bird Songs: 250 North American Birds in Song" for young children; the drawings and recorded songs might grab and hold their attention. For pre-teens, "Woods Walk: Peepers, Porcupines, and Exploding Puff Balls!" could galvanize their curiosity about the outdoors.

Charley Harper's "Birds & Words" can appeal to a wide variety of ages.

A friend of mine compiled a list of bird books that he recommends for kids, and has allowed me to post it on my site:
Children's Bird Books

I'm going to have to get some of these now that we're expecting our first child later this year!
