Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Armin Brott
In 1782, the bald eagle became the official symbol of the United States and has stood for strength and freedom ever since. But today, this graceful yet fierce bird is in danger of extinction. This isn't a book about saving an animal. Instead, it's an utterly fascinating introduction to an amazing animal. We learn how they hunt, court, nest, and hatch, and learn so many intriguing facts that it's hard to keep track of them. Did you know, for example, that bald eagles have over 7,000 feathers and that those feathers are made of keratin, the same stuff our fingernails are made of? Parents will find it just as interesting as their children. A must-have for any classroom.
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3This fact-filled offering takes readers through the life cycle of the bald eagle, introduces the majestic bird's history as a symbol of strength and beauty in North America, and describes successful efforts to increase its once-diminishing numbers. Appealing watercolor illustrations, labeled diagrams, definitions, and well-researched facts come together to form a perfect connection for teachers seeking to expand science units. It provides a blueprint for class projects, not only on bald eagles, but on other birds and animals as well. Unlike some science-related books, the clear and easy writing style makes it a good read-aloud selection that is sure to hold youngsters' attention. A first choice for libraries.Marty Abbott Goodman, L.J. Bell Elementary School, Rockingham, NC
