She was honoured with the title of "Best of Children's Non-Fiction" Georgia Author Of The Year award five times and was named one of 1999's Women of the Year by Women in Technology International for her contributions to science and technology.

In addition to her books, Sandra Markle has developed science specials for CNN and PBS. She is also noted for developing On-Line Expedition: Antarctica, one of the first on-line educational programs and continued adding further on-line reports from Antarctica while working on book projects in 1996 and 1999 as a grantee for the National Science Foundation's Artists and Writers Program.

Reviewers have heaped praise on Markle's books, including:
Outside and Inside Bats "The author presents a particularly felicitous accord of words and pictures in an outstanding science book for the primary grades." The Horn Book Magazine
Outside and Inside Alligators "This newest installment of the Outside and Inside series adds another fine book to a top-notch series." Bookselling This Week, a Kid's Pick of the Lists
Outside and Inside Dinosaurs It's like sitting down with a dinosaur expert who happens to be a great teacher." The Horn Book Magazine

Sandra Markle remains proudest, though, of the praise she has received in fan mail from children. She's happy to fulfill the requests of the young readers that urge her to "please write more."

For the animal/owl lover in your house, get this book. Not only will you get detailed information about the lifestyle and habitat of owls, but you'll also get awesome photographs of different breeds of owls doing different things. There's up close shots of their big eyes, action shots of "the hunt," cute ones of owlets, even a semi-gross one of an owl pellet. There's even a glossary, bibliography for further reading and an index. A great book for kids and adults alike!

Very nice book, pictures and text are informative for all ages, will help with school prodjects. It did come with creases in lower portion of "paper back" book, U.S.P.S. did roll it in the mail box, try to order with other products so it is shipped in a box. First time having any problem with shipping from amazon, most likely U.S.P.S. issue.
