Grade 3-6-A wonderfully user-friendly book that presents a vast amount of information. From various views of these birds of prey in ancient times to an explanation of their asymmetrical ears, from hunting habits to nesting habitats, 19 species of owls are discussed. Each double-page spread presents the topical text on the verso opposite a glorious full-color illustration or anatomical close-up drawing or diagram. While the fact-filled text and the biologically correct illustrations make this an excellent reference book, the format is also inviting to browsers. Relevant terms are highlighted and definitions are provided in the glossary. Anyone not familiar with these magnificent raptors, and those who are already fans of owls, will thoroughly enjoy this educational and delightful book.
