Janie Suss is the author of this intimate introduction to two Ospreys she named Oscar and Olive Osprey.  The book is full of real time facts about Ospreys and provides a wonderful resource if you want to understand the day to day lives of Ospreys.  Ms. Suss does a superb job in explaining what it takes to attract this type of bird and her indepth portrayal touches a personal level as it's like a journal from a person who learned by practice.  Straight from her pier in the Chesapeake Bay, you will get great details like Oscar and Olive's son being proud of his sister's ability to catch fish or when the two didn't come home to the next any longer to eat. 

I find the educational portion of the book a great resource to those interested in birds since it covers many facts such as habitat, migration, predators and more.  There are over 50 color photographs which adds to the value of the educational and entertainement aspect of Oscar and Olive Osprey. Some of the younger might get overwhelmed with the facts and details of Ospreys and habitats but it sets a firm foundation for the rest of the delightful story.  I like how Ms. Suss puts the story element behind the birds and their offsprings which should capture the interest of those wanting to know more about birds or wildlife.  My youngest are 2 and 6 and I hope in a few years, they might be more interested in learning more about birds as this book will be waiting.
