Publisher Summary
Budding birders will enjoy finding out about birds of prey in this award-winning first guide from the creators of the celebrated About... series.

This beginner's guide uses simple, easy-to-understand language to teach children what raptors are, how they look, how they move, what they eat, and where they live.

The beautifully detailed, realistic paintings of noted wildlife illustrator John Sill introduce readers to many varieties of raptors around the world, from the majestic bald eagle of North America to the sharp-eyed secretary bird of Africa. An afterword provides more information for eager young learners.

Ideal for casual exploration as well as for early childhood and elementary science units on animals.
