K-Gr 2—Using a familiar format, these books describe different birds in four-to-six brief chapters. Information includes size and appearance, diet, habitat, reproduction, young, predators, and current status and is consistent throughout, with minor gaps among the volumes. The covers show dramatic close-ups of each bird, except for the full-body shot on Red-Tailed Hawks. Overall, the photos inside are closely linked to the text. An inset map illustrates the bird's range. A concluding "Critical Thinking Using the Common Core" set of two questions do an excellent job going beyond simple recall. That, plus a word count and reading level, may make these worth considering where those features are important. VERDICT Suitable additions. --This text refers to the Library Binding edition.
