Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Eagles are very large raptors. The bald eagle, for example, has a wingspan of up to 71/2 feet and its talons can be as big as a human adult's hand. Hodge introduces the eagles of North America--their coloring, size, body structure, habitats, prey, mating and the development of the young eaglets. There are fact boxes on each spread that offer fascinating information; for instance, one bald eagle nest was 20 feet high. A concluding spread introduces a few more of the nearly 500 species of birds of prey, and other pages provide tips for eagle watching, a mini glossary and an index. All of the information is complemented by watercolor illustrations of the featured eagles. A good choice for early elementary report writers. 2000, Kids Can,
Kirkus Reviews
The large picturebook format, brief text, and many colorful eagle paintings, which appear in this modestly priced title, will attract young readers, but the text is choppy, imprecise, and dull. For example:"Eagles are big, powerful birds. They soar through the sky with their long wide wings. Eagles are birds of prey—birds who hunt for their food. All birds of prey have curved beaks and sharp claws." In fact, all birds hunt for their food, unless they are caged birds. And many other kinds of birds have curved beaks and sharp claws. Elsewhere it indicates the Bald Eagle eats fish, and so they do; but they also eat rabbits, geese, snakes, and almost any dead animals they can find. In the section,"Eagles and People," the author discusses the near decimation of eagles from hunting, poison, and lack of habitat, but does not mention the remarkable comeback of the eagle. Watercolor paintings, while handsome, are often too small or too fuzzy to provide sufficient detail. For example, in eaglewatching, the author indicates a Bald Eagle nest is found high in a tree, but the one pictured is the size of a rice grain. Elsewhere, the author notes the snake eagles have"short toes for gripping their thin prey." Hard to tell when toes are the size of a pinhead. The author and illustrator briefly introduce a dozen species from around the world, give hints on eaglewatching, and a brief glossary and index. With a dozen fine eagle titles in print, including several at the easyreading level, like Gail Gibbons's Soar with the Wind, this is an additional purchase. (Nonfiction. 68)

Soar with our largest birds of prey in the latest book from the Kids Can Press Wildlife Series. Like the other excellent books in this series, Eagles reveals its subject both inside and out. Discover what eagles eat, where they live and how they fly or compare North American eagles to their counterparts around the world. “Eagle Facts” on each page provide additional interesting tidbits (Did you know that migrating eagles travel about 55km/hour?) The beautiful colour illustrations by Nancy Gray Ogle provide an excellent compliment to the clear, simple text. All of the books in the Wildlife Series would be enjoyed by an early reader (grades 1 – 3) and would be well used for research projects.
Resource Links
Eagles is one of the books in the Kids Can Press Wildlife series. It is a well organized, attractive book that will capture the interest of primary age children who need information for a school report or who are just plain interested in eagles. With its fine index, glossary and table of contents, Eagles will be an easy book for children to find specific facts and to understand the vocabulary surrounding the subject. The illustrations are dramatic and accurate, cleverly showing the eagles’ habitat in the background. Young readers will gain important information from these detailed watercolours. Highly recommended.
Booklist
A surprising amount of information is packed into this slim entry in the Kids Can Wildlife series. Beginning with a brief look at eagles around the world, the book focuses on the two American species, touching on habitats, food, physiology, flight, behavior, and young. Clear, engaging language defines terms in the text, and then again in a glossary, while boxed “eagle facts” appear on each spread. Nancy Gray Ogle’s noteworthy illustrations will draw young readers in with their hyper-realistic watercolor details that bring out the individual character and beauty of the birds. A fine choice for budding ornithologists.
Science Books & Films
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.
