"Students who enjoyed previous iterations of this set, which in the past covered reptiles and mammals, will be pleased to see these installations. Each title begins with a look at the bird in question and then makes comparisons on the basis of a variety of traits, such as habitat, range, diet, and more. The layout is inviting, and the clear and color photographs of birds in action will tempt budding ornithologists. Intriguing and effective additions."--School Library Journal--Journal
