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.

This is a beautiful nonfiction presentation of many mighty majestical birds. With fold out pages, these life size birds are truly interesting to learn about! ( )

This was an amazingly-illustrated book that gives informational facts about many types of predatory birds. The fact that it has fold-out pages and illustrations of different parts of the birds drawn life size makes it even more fun for kids to read and from which to glean information! Jim Arnosky has many wonderful information texts for even the very young credited to his name, and this one does not disappoint. Also included in the book is a list of places the reader can visit in order to see the birds written about. This would be an excellent supplement to a classroom library anytime, but especially during a study of birds. ( )
