Birds of the Air, by Arabella Buckley

Short chapters simple language, and a chatty writing style makes Birds of the Air a popular natural history lesson text for home educating parents and students the world over, particularly among those using a Charlotte Mason educational philosophy in their homes. This new edition has been edited to bring it up to date for students of the twenty-first century.

As an aid to accompany the text, we highly recommend Natural History Pictures for a Living Education: Birds of the Air, a compilation of photographs exclusively arranged for use alongside the book. Footnotes are littered throughout Birds of the Air, indicating when a picture is available to supplement the text.
