"the lightweight and waterproof guides can easily be carried in a daypack or pocket on treks or hunting trips."--Idaho Statesman

"Pocket Naturalist guides are to nature-loving backpackers what Cliff Notes are to teens trying to navigate Shakespeare: essential."--Backpacker Magazine

Waterford Press offers laminated folding cards in many different titles such as Backyard Birds and Birds of Prey as well as local guides to other creatures and plants such as Animal Tracks, Pond Life, and Roadside Flowers. Although these contain only simple listings of the most common types in your area, its amazing how many species they pack into these inexpensive heavy duty cards. An added benefit is that they can be folded to create a book-like spine for easy display.--Birding Business Magazine

The Pocket Naturalist series of Waterford Press Pocket Guides quickly and easily introduces novice outdoorsmen to the wonders of animal and plant life, as well as other aspects of the wilderness.

Subject matter ranges from weather to wildlife, including regional and state guides to wildflowers, birds and trees.--Camping Life Magazine

"Has this ever happened to you? Your out in a field or in the forest or on a stream and a bird flashes by. You get a good look at it, note its most prominent features, but you're not sure what it is. You could look it up in a bird book, but who carries a bird book a field when the whole idea is to travel as light as possible? Now Waterford Press has come up with something that solves the problem: a pocket sized bird guide that is four inches wide, 8 1/4" inches long and flat as yesterdays beer."--Chicago Press & Sun-Bulletin

"The Pocket Naturalist series has something for everyone's backyard."--Garden Ideas & Outdoor Living

"The "Pocket Naturalist Guides" are colorful, pocket-sized, laminated, folded guides (31/2" x 81/4" folded, open to 22" x 81/4"), designed to be taken into the wilderness. They cover most states and wilderness regions, some featuring all wildlife and some much more focused (e.g., butterflies, ducks). Yes, they'll require creative shelving (we put ours in an old map box next to the other field guides), and their life span may be shorter than your average field guide, but their quality, low price, and variety are worth the inconvenience."--Library Journal

"Waterford Press takes the simple approach to learning with its Pocket Naturalist series, which features more than 100 titles. Ideal for novices and veterans alike, these lightweight water-resistant references are laminated and fold down to pocket size."--Phoenix Home and Garden

"I've found the Pocket Naturalist series of folding, plastic-coated identification charts excellent while out in the field on day trips. Not only do they fold easily and hardly take any space in a pocket or backpack, but they're also accurate and a great aid."--The O.W.L. - Newsletter of the New Jersey Outdoor Women's League, Inc.

"If you're planning a business trip and don't have room to pack bulky field guides, consider ordering a couple to tuck into a pocket of your carry-on bag or briefcase.... They're great visual aids for family vacation or nature hikes with your youngsters."--Wisconsin Natural Resources
