It’s early morning in a swamp. A roseate spoonbill is wading through a shallow pond. Slowly, the bird sweeps its long, spoon-shaped bill back and forth through the water. The colorful bird is feeling for small fish and shrimp. When its super-sensitive bill detects movement in the murky waters, the bird grabs its prey and gobbles it down.

Filled with information perfectly suited to the abilities and interests of its primary-grade audience, this colorful, fact-filled book gives readers a chance not only to learn all about roseate spoonbills and their swamp habitat, but also to develop their powers of observation and critical thinking. Built-in activities, such as guessing how the bird got its name and finding objects equivalent to the weight of a newly hatched spoonbill chick, give readers a chance to gain insights beyond the facts and figures.

Booklist Review for Roseate Spoonbill

The roseate spoonbill gets its name from its rosy pink feathers and spoon-shaped beak, which is one of the many facts kids will learn in this installment in the Swamp Things: Animal Life in a Wetland series. Appearing on the left-hand side of each spread are large-font sentences in a simple-enough structure to encourage beginning readers, with key vocabulary boldfaced. On the right, full-page color photographs depict spoonbills up-close in their natural habitat. Text boxes caption the eye-catching photographs, point out details, and pose questions that are answered on the following page. End materials include a science activity, glossary, and index. This bizarre-looking animal will surely catch the attention of young ornithologists, and this accessible volume will provide them with plenty of food for thought.
