Description

This beginner's guide offers a first glimpse into the natural world of raptors.
In this addition to the acclaimed About... series, educator and author Cathryn Sill uses simple, easy-to-understand language to teach children what the birds called raptors are, how they look, how they move, what they eat, and where they live. With beautifully detailed, realistic paintings, noted wildlife illustrator John Sill introduces readers to many varieties of raptors, from the majestic Bald Eagle of North America to the sharp-eyed Secretary Bird of Africa. An afterword provides details on the raptors featured and inspires young readers to learn more about these birds of prey.
