Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"this book begs to be read from beginning to end...a delightful experience in seeing how far both children's nonfiction books and the bald eagle have come" School Library Journal, Starred

"Libraries having the earlier title should definitely consider adding this one, too, both for its expanded text and its rich photographs." Booklist, ALA

"This book begs to be read from beginning to end as a narrative of the decline and revival of this magnificent species" The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Children's Literature
Patent and Munoz have once again teamed up to bring kids a fascinating and uplifting story. It is a sequel to their book, Where the Bald Eagles Gather, which reported that the bald eagle was endangered and threatened with extinction. Thanks to the Endangered Species Act, this majestic bird, emblematic of America, is no longer near extinction. Magnificent photographs show the bald eagle during all stages of its life. Readers learn that eagle nests can weigh up to 4000 pounds and are reused. Bald eagles needs a pound of food a day to stay healthy and they mate for life. But this book is not just filled with facts--it is a well-written account of the birds' comeback and a warning for us not to be complacent. Dangers still abound, with humans destroying bald eagle habitats. 2000, Clarion,
School Library Journal
Gr 4-8-This revision of Where the Bald Eagles Gather (Clarion, 1984) has a triumphant new title; exciting new information about the status of our national bird; and crisp, beautiful, full-color photos. When the first book was written, bald eagles were endangered in 43 states and threatened in 5. The maps that open this new title show the amazing progress the species has made in fewer than 20 years. The earlier title focused on an area of Glacier National Park where hundreds of endangered eagles could be seen. Ironically, the revised book, which celebrates the growth of the eagle population because of positive human intervention, reports that the raptors no longer return to Glacier because that environment was damaged by misguided human interference intended to help them. Large parts of the book remain unchanged. Basic information on the appearance and habits of eagles has been retained. Anecdotes about human threats to eagles are the same (although the black-market price for their feathers has dramatically increased). The color photos are large, well captioned and carefully placed. In one sense, this title makes the old one obsolete, but comparing the two is a delightful experience in seeing how far both children's nonfiction books and the bald eagle have come.-Ellen Heath, Orchard School, Ridgewood, NJ Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
