KIRKUS REVIEW

Birth, feeding, danger, first flight, quitting the nest, rigors of winter, courtship and mating: still another breed of bird comes of age--with no distinction whatever. The text is written in the sort of stiff, stop-and-go primerese that the I CAN READ series was designed to supplant; the information is presented without feeling or imagination; the illustrations are dispirited and not particularly effective as natural-science depictions. Considering the many better books about owls, and the much better books about baby birds, there's no need even for regrets.
