Publisher Comments:

Both prospective owners of birds as pets and dedicated bird watchers will want to add this book to their reference shelf. It's an A-to-Z guide to bird species with color photos and descriptions of more than 200 birds native to all parts of the world. A general overview describes bird groups and their characteristics, and advises on setting up backyard birdhouses as well as indoor and outdoor aviaries. Bird species are profiled according to their families, with separate sections on doves, parrots, bluebirds, thrushes, buntings, finches, starlings, and 10 others. Each of the book's sections has page edges tipped in a different color for quick reference. Pet owners are advised on the basics of proper bird caging and care, and additional information of special interest to bird enthusiasts is provided. The book features 300 full-color photos and comes with a clear vinyl jacket for extra protection when it's used as a field guide.

  • Synopsis:

    Middle school and high school students who are taking Italian and finding the learning process painful will change their minds when they open this book. Separate lessons teach important and interesting aspects of Italian culture while also presenting lessons in Italian vocabulary, grammar, and conversational Italian. Brief exercises that help students measure their learning progress cover grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, and idioms. Structured in a workbook format, Painless Italian is a language immersion course, but with one important difference: it immerses students gradually and painlessly into the details of Italian language and Italy's rich culture.
