My First Book of Southern African Birds - Volume 1

Recommended Price 
January 1980
About the book: 

A very first guide to birds for children aged 3 to 7, this title presents 56 of the most striking and commonly seen southern African species. 

After a brief introduction that explains how the title works and provides simple guidelines for watching birds, each new page introduces a new bird. Most of the information supplied is visual, in the form of a full colour illustration of the bird and line drawings of food eaten, typical nest and the bird's track. A visual guide to the bird's size is given at the base of the page. 

The brief text (provided in four languages) highlights interesting or notable facts about the bird.
