Children's Literature - Beverley Fahey
Many Preschool and Kindergarten classrooms have a unit of study about American symbols and this little book will fit in perfectly. With only seventy-eight words arranged in stark, simple sentences, with a repetition of some words, young readers will get just the right amount of information. Readers will learn that the bald eagle is a bird that has a white head and so is not bald at all. Eagles can be found in the wild as well as zoos and fly high and free. The bald eagle symbolizes freedom and can be found on money and the Great Seal of the United States. With only one sentence per page there is plenty of space for the full color photos that show the majestic bird in flight and in a magnificent close-up. The Read More section includes works of well respected nonfiction children's writers. Suggested web sites include the National Geographic and the San Diego Zoo. Beginning readers will find the lively text engaging; others will need some help. This title will be right at home in classroom libraries. Reviewer: Beverley Fahey
