Listen to Crossley explain the process and reasoning behind his innovative book on bird identification. The graphic design communicates so much information on one page, and it is a refreshing take on that dinosaur, the field guide (of which, I should add, I am a huge fan).

    My class has been particularly interested in birds all year long. In the early winter we hung a suet feeder at our class window and the kids watched intently as different birds visited. There were some birds none of us knew–I wrote about them in the daily blog to parents and included pictures. Within days, parents sent in identities of the unknown birds, books about birds, bird guides, etc. Those books continue to be read in my classroom and we wonder about the Pileated Woodpecker that swooped down one day and seemed to take up the entire space of the window. I look forward to checking out the Crossley Guide to see what more I can learn.
