I read this to my 7 and 4-year-old. They were entranced by the story of Baldy. We read it in one sitting because they enjoyed it so much.
This is a wonderful example of ‘nature lore’. It’s a living book that teaches about bald eagles with a narrative style that’s inviting and interesting to kids. My kids love reading animal fact books, but books like this capture their hearts and help them remember and feel a connection to the animals in the story. I loved following the adventures of Baldy and his mate through multiple years and sets of eaglets. The illustrations add to the story.
This book was a cute little story. Many real life facts and events within. We are doing a study on North American birds right now and this was a great addition. Loved it!
We enjoyed hearing all about Eagles in this story format. We learned about their habitats, behaviors, offspring and family life, diet, and more. It was simple, sweet, descriptive, and educational. The chapters are short, which motivates my reluctant reader. We read it all in one sitting. The only reason we didn’t give it 5 stars is because we felt like it was missing a connection with Baldy that we wanted.
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.
