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... and About Habitats series.

"A must-buy." ―School Library Journal

In this addition to the About... series, former educator and author Cathryn Sill uses simple, easy-to-understand language to teach children what birds are raptors, 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 around the world, from the majestic Bald Eagle of North America to the sharp-eyed Secretary Bird of Africa. An afterword provides more details.

About Raptors is part of the award-winning About... series. Ideal for casual exploration as well as for early childhood and elementary science units on animals.
