Honestly her copy of North American Birds was used the most heavily during DD/4th's bird phase. :)

Not quite what you asked, OP, but I did want to mention that DD read all of the Thornton Burgess books she could find and loved them.  She was about 7-years-old at the time, but I think they might work for a variety of ages.  

 

Here's a list of 172 of his books from the Thornton Burgess Society:

Sadly, our librarian said DD was the first person in a long time to check out these classics.  She said they are starting to get rid of these types of books in discard sales because people aren't showing an interest in them anymore.  I think, because of that fact, they can be a bit hard to find--unless you can afford to purchase used copies online.  Our library has a handful of them.

Can you ask your library to give them to you before the sale? I would think they'd jump at the chance for a guaranteed sale. I've gotten a LOT of books that way.
