Giveaway Time – Birds for Kids!

This page contains affiliate links. Please see my full disclosure policy for details.

Now that my new book is officially published, what better way to send it soaring into the world than with a giveaway? And in fact, I’ll be giving away not one, not two, but THREE copies of Birds for Kids: A Junior Scientist’s Guide to Owls, Eagles, Penguins, and Other Bird Species, along with more for each winner!

Giveaway Time!

Birding at Any Age

I’ll admit, I didn’t do too much birding when I was young, though I have fond memories of the blue jays, ruby-throated hummingbirds, black-capped chickadees, and killdeer I grew up with. But the beauty of birding is that it truly is ageless – you can start enjoying birds before you may know what birds are, and you can enjoy them for many years to come in whatever ways suit you. Even better, entire families – including cross-generational families – can easily enjoy birding together.

The Prize to Win

For this month’s giveaway, just in time for spring birds and spring break, our prize is Birds for Kids: A Junior Scientist’s Guide to Owls, Eagles, Penguins, and Other Bird Species – 70 pages of information, activities, and profiles for young or young-at-heart readers and birders. The book includes an overview – lifespans, nesting, migration, and more – and 35 bird profiles of common species to help young readers identify and enjoy what’s unique about each one. Included in those birds are some specialties you might see at a zoo, farm, or aquarium – just the unique type of birds that might get a youngster interested in birding!

Three copies of the book will be given away to randomly chosen winners, each with a Bling Swing to add to the yard as a fun perch for whatever hummingbirds or other small birds might visit. I will even sign the books to each winner with a personalized message if desired!

Enter the Giveaway

To be entered to win a copy of Birds for Kids, you just need to answer this question in the comments below…

How old were you when you first got interested in birds?

Please note, I’m not asking how old you are now! (Let’s keep those little details to ourselves, shall we?) And if you want to add more detail to your answer, who would you choose to share Birds for Kids with?

For me, I was about 10 when I most enjoyed the birds of my youth, and in my late 20s when I got more seriously into birding. Like anything, the interest and passion does come and go through the years as other parts of life get in the way.

For legal and postage reasons, the giveaway is only open to participants in the United States. All entries must include a valid email address in the comment form to be contacted if you win. The prizes will ship directly from Be Your Own Birder (addresses are not shared, sold, or traded) via USPS with tracking information. By entering, all participants agree to the Giveaway Guidelines. Entries will close on Wednesday, March 20, 2024, when the three winners will be randomly selected. Let’s all discover our own young birders and help them fly!

    I don’t recall paying much attention to birds as a child. I think I was in my 30’s when I joined the About Birding Forum and started actively looking for birds. I remember being amazed at all the birds I found and wondered how I had missed noticing them before. I just purchased your Birds for Kids book for my great-grandson Noah(8) to share with his sister Cleo.(6) Their dad (my grandson) is a wildlife biologist and has taught his children to notice and admire nature. They are little magnets for any information about birds, toads, snakes, fish, crabs, and anything else they might find on one of their many nature hikes with their parents. I am excited for their very own bird book to arrive.

    I didn’t develop a love for birds until I owned my own home and had so many visitors in my yard! Probably mid 20’s. I would be sharing with my grandkids – 3-12 years old. I really just want a signed copy! I already have it in my cart! 🙂

    Probably around seven or eight at my grandparents’ house — tasked always on my visits to refill the plentiful bird feeders and then eagerly awaiting the happy diners.

    In my 40’s after the kids moved out and I wasn’t working, Kids love learning about birds. I would give the book to my best friend’s grandchild she is 5 the perfect age to start, and I know she would enjoy it.
