"Sounds of Nature: World of Birds" by Robert Frank Hunter (Wide Eyed Editions)

We've often tweeted about books but we've not often had books tweet back at us. But this one does...
"Sounds of Nature: World of Birds" by Robert Frank Hunter is such a brilliant idea, combining a smorgasbord of birds, tons of information and gloriously colourful illustrations showing off the very best and brightest in the world of birds.

You'll get to hear them too - because, as we mentioned, the book comes with a novel little sound generator that allows you to explore a variety of bird noises in different habitats around the world.

It's wonderfully atmospheric to be reading about the bird life in the Amazonian rain forest, then with the touch of a special little button on the page, hear the birds tweeting and whooping, calling and squawking for yourself.

Birds in all different habitats around the world, even those that adapt to man-made environments
It's such an attractive book, with each page spread opening into a new vista in which bird life thrives and survives.

What does a pelican sound like, and can his beak really hold more than his belly can?
Children of all ages will love this one, with a little something for everyone for the very young right up to C's age and beyond.

Cassowaries. Have to be one of our fave birds. Just don't get on the wrong side of one!
A brilliant, brilliant book. Don't forget to tweet us about it (@readitdaddy) if you pick up a copy and love it as much as we do!
