Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
From hummingbirds to peregrine falcons, Birds explores the winged world. Each of 21 double-page spreads homes in on a particular aspect—"What Is a Bird," "Ways of Flying," "Raising Babies"—and presents intriguing facts, richly illustrated with color photographs. Author Nicola Davies closes with important information on endangered species. The almost-extinct California condor has increased from a population of 22 in 1987 to 200 today, thanks to zoo breeding programs. Humans are learning how to better protect Philippine eagles and their forest habitat. Young readers curious about bird-related careers can learn how scientists study wild birds through radio and leg tags. The final spread shows kids how to make and keep a bird scrapbook, helping youngsters become more aware of the feathered creatures around them. Part of the "Kingfisher Young Knowledge" series. 2004, Kingfisher, Ages 5 to 10.
