Sounds useful, but what I meant was a guide for how to go birding with kids.
E.g. the best playgrounds for birding, birding locations within walking
distance of amusement parks, etc. It might have tips on how to hide your
optics from the kids in a small cabin, how to steady your binoculars with a
small child on your back, what to do when your kids throw rocks in a hide, etc.
The normal books don't cover these things. Do you know I saw my first gannets
from a monkey bar?
