Birdhouses by Renee Schwartz

Book Review

Birdhouses by Renee Schwartz (Kids Can Press, 2005).

Ages 9-12

If your kids would like to make a birdhouse or two for your yard, this book is terrific for beginners and sure to appeal to kids. I love that it's not plan after plan of wood cut out of a plywood sheet. Instead, the book makes creative use of cheap materials like an old boot or plastic pipes. There are plans for some wood houses too, also with kid-appeal. Take a look at the cover by clicking on the "Buying Information" link below, and you'll see what I mean.

The book doesn't have much general information about birds, but if you are the dive-right-in type, this book will get you started on a summer of bird watching fun.
