In this fun informational picture book, children can test their knowledge of birds, one body part at a time. ?What bird has eyes like this?? asks a spread showing a close-up illustration of the body part without revealing the rest of the bird's body. ?A bald eagle!? answers the following spread, which features an illustration of the whole bird in its habitat, along with intriguing information about its unique body part and what makes it special. Eight birds in all are featured, along with another eight on an additional spread at the back of the book. This entertaining addition to the popular Head to Tail series is a perfect for read-aloud. It features eight fascinating birds from around the world --- including the kiwi, blue-footed booby and arctic tern --- with an additional eight birds described and illustrated in the back matter. Striking cut-paper collage illustrations by Kwanchai Moriya make the books in this series visual standouts and add to their appeal. With fun facts about each bird's special features, characteristics and habitat, this title has direct applications to the second-grade life science curriculum on the physical characteristics and habitats of living things. And the guessing game component offers a terrific opportunity for critical thinking and reasoning.

What happens when a peregrine falcon chooses to lay its eggs high atop a Chicago condominium balcony? Here is the story of a family of wild birds that moves into a cramped urban home and decides to settle in among towers filled with people and noise. The birds' new human neighbors are quick to try and evict, but it turns out that the falcons have rights too and the law is on their side. This amusing true-life story looks at the issues related to urban wildlife and how urban dwellers co-exist with an ever-increasing wildlife population that finds ingenious -- and sometimes devious -- ways to move into our homes and cities, often without notice. Illustrated with photographs documenting the early life of a peregrine falcon family that grows from eggs to full-fledged birds in the flowerbox of a curious apartment-dweller, this book also explores the natural history of this majestic bird species.
