Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

K-Gr. 3. This colorful book covers the basics of classroom-oriented owl science: type of bird, variety of owls in North America, parts of the body, behaviors, life cycle, and need for protection. From the eye-catching jacket to the closing page of fast facts, Gibbons certainly understands her audience: what they will need to know and what they will find interesting. More narrative in approach than the rest of the book, the life cycle section follows a mated pair of owls as they build their nest, tend their eggs, and raise their young. Though the background paintings of the night skies get a little murky at times, the colorful illustrations are effective, particularly at a little distance. Carolyn Phelan

Format: Hardcover
There are well over a hundred different kinds of owls living on every continent except Antarctica, and details on twenty of them living in North America are the focus of Gail Gibbons' introductory Owls, with drawings depicting owls as Gibbons surveys owl natural history from egg to owlet to adult. Plenty of facts makes for good, solid owl information.

The magic talent of author and illustrator Gail Gibbons is the amount of detail she can put into very few pages of text. I think it is the judicious selection of text, with the detailed illustrations, and the factoids distributed throughout, that makes up her winning formula.

In Owls, Gibbons gives the reader a very nice overview of these interesting, mostly nocturnal creatures. From owl anatomy to owl behavior, Gibbons develops a readable and educational book.

My son completed a project on owls and used MS Powerpoint. His presentation was terric but most of his research came from these owl books on Amazon. Much better than internet. This book was priced great.

Of course I had to read the book before I gave it to my grandson and found it to be full of good information written in an interesting and informative way. Especially liked the identification of the different types of owls and the illustrations . Good for children and grown ups too.
