Synopsis: Describes the behavior, physical characteristics, lifestyle, and natural environment of the loon
From School Library Journal:
Grade 1-3-- Striking close-up photographs will attract children to this informative nature book. The four species of the bird are mentioned, but most of the photographs are of the distinctive common loon. Basic information describes physical characteristics, behaviors during the nesting season, and dancing techniques used to defend territory. A well-organized format clearly identifies topics, and large typeface is printed within generous white space. The simple text is accessible to young readers, but is marred by too many exclamation points and editorial comments, e.g., "Remember: without loons there can be no loon magic!" The final page is labeled as an index, but the brief list of words and definitions are more appropriate for a glossary. A parent participation page gives further information; a list of addresses of groups interested in loons is appended. The excellent full-color photographs make this book a good companion for Barbara Esbensen's Great Northern Diver (Little, 1990). --Diane Nunn, Richard E. Byrd Elementary School, Glen Rock, NJ
