Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Incredible close-up photographs of birds, from the most elegant to the smallest and most unusual, grace this informative book in the �Living Things� series. Birds are the only animals that have feathers. The detailed illustrations add useful information to the text and photographs. Nothing is left out in this overall portrayal of birds, from nest building, feather structure, flight, egg laying, songs, and calls. Everything needed is here for children to study birds. And they will be amazed to learn that the different calls birds make are used to send messages to one another. Like baby cries when it is hungry, so a hungry chick will cry to its parent. The chicks are also able to alert their parents of danger by using certain calls when threatened. This is a good book that is full of information with a glossary and an index listed in the back pages, along with web sites for seeking even further knowledge and information. Reviewer: Joan Elste
