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
