Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-4–A fallen nest puts an eaglet into human hands, leaving him permanently imprinted and unable to fend for himself in the wild. A home at the American Eagle Foundation and instruction in falconry skills by its staff result in Challenger becoming a trained, free-flying eagle. Raven's somewhat stilted text and van Frankenhuyzen's often dramatic paintings follow the bird and his champion, Al Cecere, to a culminating free-flight before 80,000 people at the opening ceremonies of the 1996 Para-Olympics in Atlanta. More than a simple story, this is a fervent plea for the continued protection of the American bald eagle. For further eagle lore, Helen R. Sattler's eye-catching The Book of Eagles (HarperCollins, 1989; o.p.) is a great choice.–Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY

This book is a wonderful book to start children to be aware of their
world. In fact, most parents sitting down and reading this book to their
children might also become aware of what they are doing to their own little piece of the Earth.

My Grandson who is 2 years old loves Eagles. He loved the pictures and will enjoy the story more as he gets older. We read this everytime I go to visit him. I didn't know the story of Challenger and was very moved by a video that was emailed to me. That's how I found out about the book.

This is a very beautiful book and well put together. I bought two books for our Grand-daughters who are first grade teachers to use at their school.

This is a wonderful read. A true story that is happening in our time. Great for children (and adults) to learn about Eagles.

This is a great inspirational book for children. It's not quite as detailed and fulfilling as I expected, but it's perfect for young minds. I'm thinking about donating it to my local elementary school.
