Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1–3—Report writers and casual browsers will enjoy this series. Each volume begins with an introduction and a labeled photograph of the featured bird. It then covers the subject's physical appearance, habitat, diet, and life cycle. Content vocabulary appears in bold, with words defined both on the pages on which they appear and in the glossary. Plentiful, crisp color photographs show different species within the order, and the lively narratives are suitable for primary grades. One minor quibble: fact boxes that give interesting tidbits about the various animals do not always match the creatures that are pictured on accompanying pages. Otherwise, these are well-organized and useful guides.
