FalconsBook - 2005
Grade 3-5-These three titles are graced with eye-catching, full-color photos and illustrations. All three have Fun Fact sidebars interspersed throughout and lists of numerous Internet sites for further reference, but no further-reading recommendations. Clear texts provide information on physiology, life cycles, diet and hunting techniques, as well as habitats and family life. Vultures offers data on a global variety of species, while Falcons and Owls concentrate on the species found in North America. Falcons is more detailed than Deborah Kops's Falcons (Gale, 2000), while Vultures is similar to Mark J. Rauzon's Vultures (Watts, 1997). Owls is far less informative than Helen Roney Sattler's rich The Book of North American Owls (Clarion, 1995).-Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY ---School Library Journal
