Cate s birding book breaks one of the cardinal rules sorry I couldn t resist of informational books Anthropomorphism But in this case she is right and the rule is wrong That s the thing with trying to come up with tight criteria for selecting informational books When we focus too tightly on one kind of presentation we get myopic This book is not intended to be a scientist s science presentation It s about being an everyday person getting into birding and the talking birds are appropriate The purpose of the book guides the criteria I enjoyed Cate s sassy cartoon birds It s not exactly the same but the style and tone reminded me of Jared Lee s Bummers cartoons from Scholastic s 1974 1992 Dynamite Magazine The intent is not to make kids think animals have human thoughts and emotions it s intended to add some jokes to the really basic information on birding The best aspect of this book is its depth in both content and graphic formats It really is a comprehensive guide to amateur birding The wheel diagram for shades of brown the rainbow diagram for spectrum of colors of birds the bubble diagram for taxonomy it was a brilliant array of appropriate variety in graphic organizers Several different kinds of comic strips are used throughout and a large two page fashion runway was an ingenious way to show off the differences in sparrows Cate attacks the boringness of the content head on and challenges readers to just start looking and drawing It was a tough book to read in one sitting and I imagine it being best read over some time a week or two to look closely at each few pages Cate promotes a field guide over her book for actually getting out observing and differentiating birds It reminded me of our days in Gunnison when we kept A Field Guide to Western Birds next to the kitchen window that looked out onto our lilacs We saw dozens of different kinds of birds there every spring and summer and we d put a date next to each bird when we saw it I haven t been able to find that guide book since we moved down from the mountains six years ago
