Editorial Reviews

Through sweeping two-page pictures and short descriptive sentences and paragraphs, Eagles presents a complete story for young readers in 32 pages. Topics include eagles’ anatomy, behavior, and tips for studying and watching the birds. Definitions are included within the descriptions in the text, so the 10-word “Words to know” section at the end of the book is almost not needed. This slim volume is a delightful place to meet up with 10 different eagles of the world, including two North American forms (the bald eagle and the golden eagle). Also, highlighted facts are found in nine boxes along the way through the enjoyable presentation. Eagles offers an excellent place to learn about these majestic birds.
