Sun-loving robins like open-air houses. Homebody house sparrows prefer a roof over their heads. Friendly purple martins love to live together in sky castles. Just like people, birds need a space to call their own. The nine birdhouses featured in this book in the Kids Can Do It series require only basic woodworking skills and easy-to-find or recycled materials. Illustrated step-by-step instructions will help kids -- and parents -- turn their backyards into regular bird havens!

Gr. 4-7. This attractive guide from the Kids Can Do It series shows and tells how to build nine birdhouses using inexpensive materials such as wood, plastic drainage pipes, flower pots, and even an old boot. Discussing the basics that apply throughout the book, the introduction includes fully illustrated sections that identify tools and materials, offer tips on construction techniques, and suggest ways to mount a birdhouse. Children are advised to have an adult operate the power drill; otherwise, only hand tools are used. Each project begins with a colorful photo of the finished birdhouse and a list of materials. Small, clear pictures illustrate the step-by-step directions. Carolyn Phelan
