My youngest son loves birds, but he doesn’t always want to read bird guides or other science-related books. He’s just a little too young for that. So I made an effort to find storybooks that featured birds, and these have been a hit with him. There’s also a couple of non-story books here that are great for young kids too. Feel free to leave your recommendations in the comments area too.
I was so happy to receive this book by Jacqueline Davies as a present for my son who loves drawing birds too. I couldn’t let him go without learning about John James Audubon. It’s the most text-heavy book in this list, so it’s perfect for bird lovers of all ages.
If you have a child who likes reading about science, this book by Melissa Stewart is all about the importance of feathers and how birds use them.
This isn’t a storybook, but I’m including it here because it’s such a lovely book and my son loves it. Of course, you could just use an app, but there’s something fun about having a book that plays two hundred bird songs. The best part is that you can find used versions of these large, gorgeous books for a reasonable price.
