"Information is clear . . . Great addition to collection on birds or nocturnal animals."

Seattle Public Schools, July 5, 2007

"One area that separates this piece from other pieces of nonfiction is that the glossary is presented prior to the text. This allows children to preview unfamiliar words prior to engaging in the reading, which is appropriate for the third grade level. Because of this unique organization, a student reading this book as part of a science lesson would also engage in an effective reading strategy . . ."
