Falcon by Tim Jessell
Birds have always had a fascination for me. My parents and grandparents pointed out different types and showed me how to identify them. I still check them out and use a bird book to be sure I'm identifying them properly. Reading a picture book about falcons is right up my alley.
Random House Children's Books sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you). The book has been published and you can find a copy at your local bookstore.
With simple text and eye swelling illustrations, your child will feel like he/she is flying along with the bird as the falcon travels cross country. Mr. Jessell's illustrations are magnificent. I'd be happy to put a few on my wall as prints.
Falcons are strong, beautiful in flight, and they will fly for miles looking for prey. Most times you only get a glimpse of them, but this book lets you take a good look at one.
Why not share some bird knowledge with your child?
