Reviews - What do customers think about National Audubon Society Regional Guide to New England?

Great companion on your day hikes  May 29, 2008
This book is a great companion to take on your day hikes. Very good photo's and descriptions to help identify various flora and fauna.
Educational Book  Jun 10, 2007
This book is amazing!! It is very educational. I like how it has only the plants and animals that are specific to New England. The pictures are clear and the blurbs about the animals and plants have just the right amount of information in them for learning. I also like how it has other aspects like the night sky, geology, climate, ect. and it is well divided into those categories. I use this book to teach kids about what they find out in nature. It is easy for them to use and quickly find what they are looking at. It is also easy for them to read and understand. Some of them just like perusing through it to see what is around them. Once again, an amazing book for yourself, family, or for educational purposes. I wouldn't travel in New England without it.
Wonderful portable outdoor reference  Feb 6, 2007
After using the Northwest version of this Audubon series, the New England version was attractive as a companion field guide to my bird books. Like the Northwest version, the New England version hasn't disappointed me.
neat  Nov 10, 2006
has what I needed, but isn't very good with the oaks, maple trees, and some fish.
The best pictures are in this little book  Nov 4, 2006
After flipping through and enjoying the sharp photography of this book, you will realize that it is also abounding in interesting facts concerning all of New England. Ever wonder what kind of fish you caught last summer or what that caterpillar will change into? Whether you need to know what kind of Oak tree is in your backyard or want to check out the constellations at various seasons - it's in this book! Great (and small enough) to take on hikes to identify animal tracks, flowers and even mushrooms! Although I have a few birding books, I find this one is easiest to use for identification. If you live in NE and want to know what is happening outdoors this book will pique your interest.
