Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Elizabeth Young
Everything you have always wanted to know about owls is addressed in this book. Gregory's work in the "Nature's Children" series is a delight. Visually stunning color photographs enhance the descriptive and informative text. Owls live all over the world, probably very close to your home, but as most owls are nocturnal, you do not see them as often as other birds in your area. They play a helpful role in reducing the pesky rodent population near barns and suburban areas by hunting mice, rats, and squirrels. An owl can hear a mouse walking 75 feet away! This, and other fun facts, are scattered throughout the book. No aspect of an owl's life is untouched in these pages. From their powerful beaks to their feathered toes, these beautiful birds hold a special place in our hearts—even being synonymous with wisdom. Following the text are a glossary, index, habitat map, and a brief bibliography for further owl investigation. This is a perfect addition to any library or budding ornithologist's book collection.

    good Owl book for children. thorough

    I bought this for a gift basket for a 5 year old and I think it is somewhat too complicated, but could be simplified by the reading adult and has nice pictures. There were not a lot of books about owls (my task to find) so this fit the bill. It could grow with the reader.
