Synopsis: Book by Singer, Marilyn

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3-5-A far-ranging and sweeping overview of various types of creatures with wings-including birds, insects, and mammals-and the myriad ways they use these versatile appendages. Singer goes beyond a description of the mechanics of flight to include how wings are also used by various creatures for balance, as a weapon, as a part of courting rituals, and to help hunters attract prey. The discussion then comes back around to flying, or rather to migration, which all of these animals do to find food and the right climate in which to live and breed. Unfortunately, covering such a wide spectrum of nature's winged creatures from as many different parts of the world makes for a superficial presentation. The artwork, created with brushed and airbrushed acrylics and colored pencil, is colorful and appealing but sometimes too cluttered to be informative. One double-page spread includes depictions of the wingspans of eagles, hawks, and vultures, in addition to swifts and swallows, the ability of hummingbirds to hover, and two Emperor penguins that use their flippers to propel them through the water. Not all of the flora and fauna are identified; some species are referred to by their general names. Singer concludes by stating that some of these animals are in danger because people fear them or don't understand their importance. She suggests that children can learn about them by direct observation or by reading. This book gives youngsters a fleeting glance instead of a good long look.
