A Photographic Guide to Birds of East Africa by Dave Richards
2 of 2 people found the following review helpful
I bought this book for a holiday on the NE coast of Kenya, and wanted something I could carry every day, even when the purpose of the day's outing was not birdwatching. I found the book's coverage - number of species - too restricted for the locations I visited. I saw many birds which I could identify only by family, and I don't often need a book to do that. That said, I did find it very portable and when the species was included, easy to use to identify what I was seeing. Given the number of species in the whole of East Africa, some compromise is inevitable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Versatile fun with no batteries, 17 Feb 2011
Continuo is fun to play in mixed groups of any age. We have carried a version with us on pretty much every family holiday since our children were about 6 and 4. When they are young we helped them to spot the best place for 'their' tile and now they work it out for themselves. The finite duration of each game matches attention spans pretty well, and everone has to pay attention to the tiles placed by other players. Scoring reinforces counting skills. I would recommend the game to any family which wants a light, low-tech, fun indoor activity for all ages.
