Children's Literature - Denise Daley
Bald eagles have few enemies and can live to be more than thirty years old if undisturbed by humans. They have tools such as their wings, talons, and eyes, which they use to help them survive. This book describes each of these body parts in several paragraphs and has bright full-page photographs that accompany the text. The bald eagle's life cycle is explained and so are relatives of the bald eagle, again in several paragraphs and with beautiful full-size photographs that show the eagle in its natural habitat. The concluding chapter discusses past threats to bald eagles and their subsequent reemergence and recovery. The bald eagle was removed from the list of endangered animals in 2007. This book has an appendix that includes a detailed glossary and index, a world habitat map, and a few sources for additional information. This informative book is part of the "Nature's Children" series and it is recommended for any young reader, but especially those with an interest in wildlife. Reviewer: Denise Daley
