I’m so pleased to have been able to read this book in ARC form, and even more pleased that this book is out in the world for all to read and enjoy! Congratulations Maria Gianferrari and Brian Floca on this spectacular book!

Roaring Brook Press, June 2018

This story centers on a little girl who watches Father Hawk hunt to feed his nest of babies. I used to work as a raptor rehabilitator while I was in college so I have a big affinity for raptors of all kinds, and particularly love red-tail hawks as they are fairly common and easy to spot. Maria Gianferrari does an excellent job sharing facts about this spectacular creature and Brian Floca’s illustrations are spot on. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is interested in nature and wildlife.
