Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dianne Ochiltree
This book describes the life cycle, behaviors, and eating habits of vultures in accurate detail. Color photographs add interest to a text that presents facts about this fascinating family of birds using simple words that young naturalists will easily understand. The book includes a glossary, subject index, follow-up learning activities, and sample questions for discussion. Although the presentation of facts isn't flashy, this book's sturdy construction and solid information make it particularly useful for classroom or library. Part of Lerner's "Early Bird Nature Books" series
School Library Journal
Gr 1-4Two fine additions to a series that is tops for young readers to share with their caregivers. Bobcats is exceptionally good, written with energy and full of lively, full-color photographs. The place of this small cat in the cat family, comparisons to pet felines, physical attributes, habitat, behavior, hunting skills, and the rearing of the young are all covered in animated narration. Vultures discusses various species and habitats and the niche of these birds in the world, the ways they find and eat their food, and the raising of chicks. A number of photographs are of birds in captivity. Both titles touch on the dangers facing these animals, especially vulturesmany species are already extinct while others are severely endangered. Both books have colorful habitat maps (the map of North America in Vultures shows only the range of animals on this continent though a caption indicates that they "live all over the world" and many of the species in the photographs live on other continents). Also included are useful glossaries, discussion-provoking questions at the opening of each chapter, and notes for adults on sharing books and extending the experience across the curriculum.Susan Oliver, Tampa-Hillsborough Public Library System, FL
