As soon as we finished reading Baldy, my 11 and 7 year old declared that they loved this book! They loved that it was about nature and family, (an Eagle family of course). My son and I would look up videos after each chapter to see eagles in action. I liked learning about the life of Bald eagles in the form of story.
Baldy the American Eagle is a great example of a living book that describes the life of a bald eagle. It has great black and white illustrations and descriptive language. The story format will keep kids engaged as learn all about bald eagles.
My reluctant reader, who loves all animals, loved this book. The story kept his interest as he learned about the eagles and their care for their young. He also loved the beautiful, detailed, black and white illustrations.
I have not personally read the book yet but my 8 year has read it four times in the last week. She really loves this book and even shared it for her shown and tell time at our weekly co-op. She has told me about it and it seems to be a heartwarming and educational story. I would say that it is probably more for level 3 than 4 since she is only 8 and was able to read it through on her own and quickly and understand the story easily.
This book gives a great look into the life of an eagle. We love these living books that teach facts through story. My kids are now searching the skies every day looking for Baldy!
Beautifully written in a relatable story form, Baldy the American Eagle takes readers along for a ride spanning part of the life of an adventurous American eagle. Faced with challenges from nature as well as human influence, Baldy and his mate strive to find food, raise their young, and survive in their ever-changing environment.
