Story Time Idea: HAWK RISING


Amazing Animals week continues with a story time idea for Hawk Rising by Maria Gianferrri, illustrated by Brian Floca. This lyrical picture book tells the story of a father hawk hunting to feed his family, as a curious child watches with fascination. Enjoy the story, talk about the birds you've seen in your neighborhood, then enjoy some "hunting" of your own. 

Other books for bird lovers: Whoo-ku Haiku: A Great Horned Owl Story, also by Maria Gianferrari, illustrated by Jonathan Voss and The Hawk of the Castle: A Story of Medieval Falconry by Danna Smith, illustrated by Bagram Ibatoulline.
