handbook "I sincerely believe that for the child, and for the parent seeking to guide him/her, it is not half so important to know as to feel." - Rachel Carson Children have an innate affinity to nature which is often lost while growing up. If nurtured, however, a child’s association with nature can last a lifetime and lead to several physical and emotional benefits. The handbook contains a section on natural history of birds, written in simple language appropriate for a beginner. Preparation needed for the facilitator who is taking a group on a bird walk. One section describes the details of planning, organizing and conducting a bird walk for a group of children or adults. Talks and presentations about birds can be enlivened in many ways, and we give you tips and tricks, dos and dont's. Beautifully illustrated by Saumitra Deshmukh and designed by Aditi Elassery, this Handbook is a visual treat.
