Book Review: My Little Book of Bald Eagles
Author: Hope Irvin Marston
Illustrated by Stephanie Mirocha
Windward Publishing: www.finneyco.com
From the back cover: From the newborns' first solo flight to their own fishing adventures, this beautifully illustrated book is ideal for introducing young children to the wonders of nature.
My Review: This is a beautiful book. I have been lucky to see bald eagles in person on my summer trip to Alaska and they are the most fascinating birds to watch. This book tells their story in beautiful active words that engage the reader. The realistic illustrations are nothing more than fantastic. Children will love the pictures, the text, and their new found facts about the bald eagle.
Books written so well like this one by Hope Irvin Marston are the kind of books that make children love nature and want to learn more. This would be an excellent addition to any elementary classroom as a resource to learn more about this protected bird.
Thanks to Ms Marston for contributing such a fine book for young learners. Follow her on the next stop on the World of Ink tour at http://momnbaby.com/blogs
