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?

Happy reading.
