Falcons by Wayne Lynch

Grade 3-5-These three titles are graced with eye-catching, full-color photos and illustrations. All three have Fun Fact sidebars interspersed throughout and lists of numerous Internet sites for further reference, but no further-reading recommendations. Clear texts provide information on physiology, life cycles, diet and hunting techniques, as well as habitats and family life. Vultures offers data on a global variety of species, while Falcons and Owls concentrate on the species found in North America. Falcons is more detailed than Deborah Kops's Falcons (Gale, 2000), while Vultures is similar to Mark J. Rauzon's Vultures (Watts, 1997). Owls is far less informative than Helen Roney Sattler's rich The Book of North American Owls (Clarion, 1995).-Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY--School Library Journal

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
