  1. Trusted Mumma

    Wow, I’ve always loved owls, but this book showed me so much more about them.
    After reading this book, I’ve decided I would never want to come across a Great Grey Owl in a dark alley -69cm tall!!!
    I especially loved the glorious photographs and extra owl facts.
    I remain in awe of how God created such beautiful and complex bird.

  2. Kay Liz

    Very bright and colorful book. Love all the different Owl pictures, and amazing descriptions of each type. The best book to learn about owls for sure!

    This is great for kids or anyone else interested in learning about or expanding their knowledge of owls. There’s a lot to know and Jenny Kellett does a fine job of presenting the information with a lot of color photos of different varieties along with their anatomy, how they communicate, disguise themselves, and breeding. She also discusses owls in art and culture, and in the ecosystem and what we can to do help. There’s also a section of fun facts and a quiz to test what you’ve learned and puzzles for playing fun. She also has written many other books on other animals that are worth checking out.

    I love owls but on walks or in the wild, I only hear them. It’s nice to see what they look like with the splendid pictures in this book and find out more about them. There is so much information presented in a style that makes this a great family book. I didn’t realize how many types there are and how extensive they are on the planet. Spoiler—There is a limit to their head spins.

    I’ve now read and reviewed several animal books by this author, and every time. I come away with more knowledge about the particular animal and a smile on my face! Even though these books are clearly meant for children, probably between the ages of 8 and 11, even adults can learn from and enjoy these books. The author is a zookeeper, and she has a natural talent for sharing information in an easy to understand and enjoyable way. Plus, she picks magnificent pictures to highlight the particular animal. I had no clue there are so many species of beautiful owls out there! She doesn’t shy away from sharing the scientific information and using complex words, but she does so in an easy to grasp way, making it a pleasure to learn from the books. Even though these guides are relatively short, she packs a lot into them, including information about different species, life cycle, anatomy, and the animal “in action.” In this book, we even learn about how (and why) owls communicate and even about how owls have come to mean much in human culture.

    I like how in every book in this series she discusses how the animal is doing in terms of endangerment, and unfortunately, owls are quite in danger, with 30% of their species being so because of human changes in habitat, pesticide use, and global warming. But the author is not doom and gloom. She always includes a short section about what the reader, even a child, can do to help support conservation.

    There are so many fun facts here—both as separate facts and woven throughout the rest of the narrative. Here are some of my favorites: Some owl species can turn their heads up to 270° around. They have double the neck vertebrae we do and improved vascularization (don’t want to cut off blood supply to the brain!) to allow them to do so. The snowy owl can change its feather colors to blend in with the season. Some species communicate with other owls with their hoots to mark their territory. Some species have large facial disks around their eyes that act like satellite dishes directing sounds to their ears. Those are just some of the fun facts I learned. If you have or know of a child who has more than the average interest in animals (or in particular, owls) and would like to encourage nerdy fascination and curiosity, pick up this book and share it with her or him. You will undoubtedly both enjoy it!

    I received a free digital copy of this book, but that did not affect my review.
