The Eagles are Back

Eagles_are_back (1)Written by Jean Craighead George, Paintings by Wendell Minor

The Eagles are Back tells the story of a young boy’s determination to save the bald eagle by helping in the hatching of an eaglet. With the complimenting majestic, detailed paintings, the text will “motivate readers of all ages to care for the environment and for the many creatures that inhabit it.” (book jacket) This would be a wonderful book to introduce endangered species in science or social studies and how loving dedication and care can turn things around. With the American Bald Eagle being one of our nation’s symbols, it is inspiring to read. There are also bibliographical sources listed in the back for further information.
