Long-time nature writer and birding columnist Jim Wright shares his three wildlife stories through lavish illustrations and imaginative story-telling.
About the Books:
Duck Enough to Fly: The photo-driven story of nine baby Wood Ducks who leave their nesting box and greet the wide world beyond.
Icky the Hungry Heron: What happens when a Great Blue Heron tries to eat a giant fish? You have to see it to believe it. For boys only. (Just kidding, but it sure gets the girls — and boys — to pay attention!) This is the real crowd-pleaser of the three.
Swan Babies: Two swans fall in love, build a nest and start a family — and then a storm hits!
