The book is about birds and includes incredible photographs and interesting factual information about different kinds of birds.

A beautifully illustrated informational book about various predatory birds. This book would appeal to many readers, both odler and younger. The layout of the book keeps readers interested with fold-out pages and life-size depictions of some birds, and there is a load of information included about each one. This is a very nice book!

This book is about different types of birds and the features that make them unique. I enjoyed this book because of the photography they put into the book to show the different birds. I would use this in a classroom of young readers who need to be introduced to wildlife and learn more about birds. ( )

The illustrations in this are beautiful and some of them are life size which is always fun for kids to compare. The book makes learning fun and I can see kids in the upper elementary school enjoying books like these and learning about animals.

I thought that this book was seriously awesome! There is so much information but it is laid out in way that doesn't feel heavy. The book is still interesting and informative at the same time. There are very captivating illustrations and fun ways to show the size of the birds. I think that for the amount of information that this book still remains fun and captivating.
