I tend to like more and more nonfiction books for kids. It’s a great way to learn through nice and smartly designed volumes. In other words, they are just as perfect for adults, not just for 9-12 year olds! The Fascinating Animal Book for Kids: 500 Wild Facts totally fits the description.

Three ways to join in this week!
You can either share 3 or more books
on a single topic that you have read and can recommend (be the expert),
you can put the call out for good nonfiction on a specific topic
that you have been dying to read (ask the expert),
or you can create your own list of books
on a topic that you’d like to read (become the expert).

This year, I would love to ask the expert, about books on birds or birding. According to Goodreads, I have read the following books:

Bird books - read

Alas, I don’t remember much of these. Except Life List, which was the amazing adventure of this woman diagnosed with cancer, who decided to use the last months of her life looking for the most unusual birds. Really good, and sad. I won’t spoil it by telling you why.

And now, here are the bird books currently on my TBR!
Needless to say, that’s way too many for one single topic.
So I need your help: if you have read any of these, please let me know which ones I should keep or skip.
NB: if you right click and open the picture in another tab, you will see much bigger.
