2 in stock
This basic primer for kids by Jennifer Keats Curtis does a well-balanced and thorough job of explaining to children what raptor centers and rescue volunteers do for injured birds and orphaned chicks. Replete with enough pictures to keep interest and attention, the book is just long enough not to toss aside for the next Nintendo battle. It paints an optimistic picture of rehab and release, covers the role of un-releasable teaching birds, and inspires kids to imagine raptor volunteer roles, and even includes key practical tips on do’s and don’ts when encountering injured birds. For a little book, there is also lots of detailed information on interesting raptor facts and variations. Total read time is about 10-15 minutes.
