10 Montessori books about birds

Our Montessori box this month is all about birds!

Very young children are fascinated by birds, as they are so easy to spot in their everyday life.

Here are 10 of my favourite books about birds.

Note that I chose some that features birds that we can find in Europe.

My first book of Garden birds:

A beautiful picture book about garden birds that will appeal to families with young children. Very pretty watercolour illustrations.

Songs of the birds:

Featuring 24 birds and their bird calls with a press here feature! 

The little book of bird songs

Another sound book!

First book of birds by RSPB

Learn all about identifying birds with this spotter guide. More for 6+ or use it as a family to help your child identify birds. 

RSPB nature guide: birds: a big garden birdwatch book

A bit similar to the one above but more for younger audience. 

How to attract birds to your garden

Plenty of helpful tips to attract more birds to your garden.

Robins, Wrens and other british birds: national trust sticker book

This book is packed with facts about brilliant birds and their homes. With four pages of wildlife stickers, you can stick the ducks into the pond, fill the sky with swallows, add nests to the treetops, and much, much more. From oystercatchers wading in the estuary to woodpeckers nesting in the woods, this is an excellent introduction to all types of birds for the very young.

My first book of birds:

A beautifully illustrated book for young children, packed with information and fun facts – everything you need to know to help you learn about and identify birds. With key facts about size, habitat, diet and population, there are detailed descriptions of each bird and tips to help you spot them in your own park or garden. There is even a special, "Did you know?" section on each bird, which all young ornithologists will love!

Plenty of activities to try with your child to instill a love of birds, attract them and protect them!

Listen to the birds:

A lovely board book perfect for an older baby, young toddler. It was my son's favourite!
