The 20th annual Great Backyard Bird Count just finished up and the next one is Feb 16 to Feb 19, 2018. Birding is a fantastic reason for families to get outdoors and observe nature—and to read nature books together!
I’m teaming up with Downtown Bookworks for a birding for kids book giveaway that can help prepare any child for the Great Backyard Bird Count—or any day of birding! Awaken the budding naturalists and ornithologists in your child, or just use these books as an excuse to get outside!
p.s. Doodles and Jots has a free printable Bird Journal for kids to track the birds they find!
