Overview

On Maryland's western shore, a young boy watches a pair of eagles nesting in a stand of oak trees near his school. When the land where the trees are growing is sold to a company that plans to build condominiums there, the boy wonders what will happen to the eagles. Eventually, he and his classmates become worried enough to do something to help the nesting pair. Students, teachers, parents, and people from the local business community all join forces to ensure that the eagles can keep their nesting site. The story is appealing for its look at the remarkable bird that is America's national emblem. At the same time, children are encouraged to learn their voice can be heard. Grades 2-5

I really enjoyed reading this to several of my students. They were fasinated with John B's adventures with both the birds and the community.
