Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This book is part of the series "Animals That Live in the Desert." It makes a great supplement to the elementary school curriculum. The beautiful photographs provide close-up views of this animal. Some of the photographs contain labels and arrows pointing to the vulture's body parts. The text is written at a second grade reading level. The reader learns where the animal lives, what it eats, and how it adapts to the arid environment. The large font, subject, and stunning photographs entice even a reluctant reader. In the "Note to Parents and Educators," Susan Nations, M.Ed., an author, literacy coach, and a consultant in literacy development, explains how the series is designed to help children learn about the animals that live in the desert. She also explains how the books can be used in classroom reading groups. At the end of the book there is a glossary, including definitions for bills, croak, down, hooked, and desert. The "For More Information" page lists books and Web sites the reader can use to continue to study this topic. The other books in this series include Coyotes, Rattlesnakes, Jackrabbits, Gila Monsters, and Roadrunners. They are available in English, as well as in a bilingual English/Spanish version. 2006, Weekly Reader Early Learning Library, Ages 4 to 8.
