This short book is a textbook written for students and teachers back in the 1800's. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it, and wished it had been written about Australian birds instead of English ones. The author obviously had a passion for both birds and education, although I was surprised by her suggestion that readers take any opportunity to examine dead birds. Ick! Though perhaps my response is hypocritical. When my son was quite young and very interested in biology, he would always examine a chicken when I cleaned it before cooking, so he could take a close up look at all the innards. Many thanks to the narrator for her excellent reading.

Wow, there are a lot of birds in England! I want to make friends with the birds in our backyard and feed them a little in the wintertime. -age 5
