Meet Freyja, a mice-eating Peregrine Falcon who works at the Center for Wildlife in Cape Neddick, Maine. Children of all ages will laugh (and learn) as they read about Freya’s story and the plight of the Peregrine Falcon, a breed driven to the edge of extinction in the 1970s. Their resurgence and the challenge of living in the modern world is lovingly told through the drawings and words of the children of the York, Maine School System. The book includes fascinating facts about Peregrine Falcons, some of the science behind animal conservation, and Freyja's own touching story. The book closes with action steps kids can take to help keep animals safe in the wild, along with helpful links to websites where they can learn more about The Center for Wildlife, Peregrine Falcons and other endangered species.
More than a kid's wildlife book, this story is told through the eyes of children with added facts about challenges falcons face; DDT, pollution, traffic, even litter. The book is perfect for teaching children about wildlife, conservation, and what they can do to help protect animals. Also contains a coloring page and links to online resources to bolster learning. Makes learning about wildlife for kids fun and educational.
