Hirsch, Rebecca E. Pileated Woodpeckers: Insect-Hunting Birds (Comparing Animal Traits Series) 32 pgs. Lerner, 2016. $25.00 NON-FICTION
provide information about Pileated Woodpeckers buts it real function is to
compare a variety of insect hunting birds like Roadrunners, Flamingos, and Wood
Thrushes. It features stellar photograph image choices as well as bright and
varied font and text boxes.
think the bottom line is that the title should just be plain Insect Hunting birds and
the reader can just learn facts about each. I am not sure why the series chose
to have one featured animal to compare the rest to, its honestly too confusing.
I wouldn’t buy this series for my library, but the content itself is well written
and readers may find it interesting.
